The two Mary Abbotts married to Joseph Scribner are due to previous merges and will be modified once additional information is obtained.

I'm trying to understand more about Benedict-733 and the wives listed on his profile. Was Samuel definitely married to both Jemima (Canfield) Benedict and Jemima (Keeler) Benedict who was a widow of Ebenezer Canfield? Trying to discover more source material. I've just started researching this line more and hope to sort out all the details.

Thanks for your PM.

Thank you for your recent merges on WikiTree. I see you rejected a merge of Arnold-737 and Arnold-1619 because you felt there wasn't enough info.

Please be sure to check the bios and not just the basic data when doing merges. I reproposed the merge as Arnold-737's bio says Abigail was the wife of John Mann and they married on June 29,1720, which matches the data for Arnold-1619.

Thank you for your contributions to WikiTree's global project to create one World Family Tree.


Thanks for all your work on merging! Take a look at, Quick hint, the headings need to be on a separate line to show up as headings

Hi, it looks like you have a lot of duplicates in your watchlist. As a mentor on Wikitree, I suggest that you do under "find" > Matches for family. If you work through all those potential matches you will help reduce the number of duplicates in your watchlist. If you have any questions at all, please let me know.
