Michelle, Sorry I do not know the birth dates and death years of William Glascock's mother and wife. Thus I posted estimated dates so the file will be open. I hope this helps. Jim

Michelle, thank you for your comment on Scott-2472. I don't have an ancestry account, but my library has a sub.

Hi, Michelle, I'm sorry I don't know which one it was - only one. That's interesting that even this early they used the husband's name on the census. I see that a lot in later years. and then leave the last name, as you did. All the Acadian women would be current name = LNAB as well as those in Quebec in the 1700's.

Hi, Michelle, I see that you changed the last name of an Acadian woman from her LNAB to her spouse's last name. In that time period, French women (all Acadians) did not do this. They kept their LNAB as far as the evidence we have goes. Please see the names section on the project page:

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Acadians#Frequently_Asked_Questions I changed it back, so this note is for further reference. It also applies to Quebec women from that time.

Thank you for the merge request for DePriest, Michelle. Unfortunately, it isn't as simple as 'they have the same name'. We need some corroborating evidence. I'll look into it, and merge them when I (or someone else) finds some.

Hi, Michelle

You messaged me about merging for Cleburne Walters. He is my father-in-law, and I loved him dearly. I will be happy to merge those profiles. I see you are a retired science teacher. Me, too,. Maybe we share some DNA? Or maybe not. Have a great day. Nancy Walters

Sullivan-8557 and Sullivan-1753 are the same person but owner of first has all "her family" red privacy level which does not support the honor code. I have tried in past to have this resolved without any success. Also this red level does not allow others to add to this person's descendants.

re: Proposed merge of Walton-833 and Walden-78 - they do seem to represent the same person - with the ultimate surname spelling as Walton (I'm not sure how to make this happen)

Hi Michelle, re Barefield-138, the discrepancy in DOB came up in a suggestion I came across on the Data Doctors project. Definitely agree FAG not always accurate, hence my message. I have sent a request to FAG for a gravestone photo, and have put a comment on the suggestion. I'll let you know if anything turns up. You may find you have similar FAG suggestions on other profiles, it's a very common suggestion.
