Thanks for accepting my merge request. The advantage of doing it the slow way is I am able to fill in more detail as a joint profile maintainer.

That's a lot of flight hrs! I'm around 2,800 and built a Lancair Legacy. N18GG.

Thank you for your comments. I am descended from Thomas who changed his name to Arms. I'm hoping DNA will someday connect me to his ancestors.

I live in Michigan. Were you born in the Detroit area?

Hi Robert,

I see you made added some death info to John Patterson back in September. I couldn't find a source for it. (I see that it is marked uncertain). I found a book that 1 Mar 1707 that he received a land grant from the town of Billerica. Wondering if maybe there was some kind of mixup. Thanks for any help you can provide!

Robert It turns out that there are at least three different William Soule's all born near the the same time and place.We are just now starting to get them sorted out.I believe that there are still some small errors to be corrected.I also believe that if we work together we can get it done.

Robert your Soule's are now sorted out and connected to George.
