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!

Hi Cousin, I noticed there's a category for descendents of William Arms but when I tried to add it to my profile, it didn't work. Is it because I need some kind of approval, do you know? Thanks!
