Are John's dates and parents right? It seems unlikely that he was born in 1700 if he died in 1814, and John Sr. and Lucy Lawrence currently have two sons named John who clearly aren't the same person -- not impossible, but unlikely.

Belt-313 and Belt-117 appear to represent the same person because: Same parents; nothing on either record to indicate that there were two siblings of the same name.

John is 12 degrees from Caryl Ruckert, 14 degrees from Harriet Stowe and 11 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
