Hi, I had to revert your edit that added Sarah Bannister (Bannister-1449) as the mother of the 3 children of Henry Wright (Wright-35060). These were by Henry's 1st wife. Also, Sarah would only have been 11 at Frederick's birth in 1877.

Thanks! I didn't notice the age differences.

Hi Mark. I'm new to this site and not an expert genealogist, so there might be better ways to do this but here goes: I'm trying to confirm a connection to Hannah Cole and I see that you have are reference to Hannah Cole, but I don't see any good evidence that we referencing the same person. The Hannah Cole I'm searching for married Nathan Moore and had 3 children: Rosette Moore, Loran (aka William L.) Moore, and Guy Moore. I have Iowa census records for 1860, 1870 and 1880. I also see that Burch is referenced by some people among my 23&Me cousins, so this gives me some hope of a connection to you. If you think that the Hannah Cole I'm researching could be the same one that you reference, you can find links to my sources here:

(I'm not very competent with this site, so perhaps there is an easier way that I could confirm a genetic connection with you using WikiTree resources? Presumably we've both done 23&Me, but I could not find you among my "DNA relatives" there, although I did find tangential references to Burch.)

I don't know of any Hannah Cole in my family tree. I work on a lot of profiles on wikitree that I am not related to. Can you give me the ID of the Hannah Cole that is somehow connected to me?

posted by Mark Burch
This is the one that seems to be connected to your name:

But if you are not genetically connected, then the chances of this being the Hannah Cole I'm looking for seem even more remote. Ultimately, what I really need, is to find some Hannah who was born in Ohio and married Nathan Moore, who was also born in Ohio, and I have an Ohio marriage record suggesting that Hannah Cole might be an option, but I can't confirm that Hannah Moore is this Hannah Cole. Alas, I now realize that this Hannah was born in Missouri, so it is probably not the one I'm looking for. Sorry for the false alarm.

Hi Mark, I just proposed a merge of Boyd-10693 into Boyd-6601 . Any thoughts on this or ideas on how to see which is the correct birth date etc ?
posted by J. West
The Maryland birth record gives the correct DOB. The death date comes from the will but the date is the date of probate, not necessarily the death date. I think the death date should be 1792 since we don't know the exact day and month he died.
posted by Mark Burch
Thank you! So that would make his birth date January 13, 1706. His parents are shown as marrying on March 28, 1706, two and a half months AFTER his birth and I think there is an original record for the marriage also.

So I am wondering if it is one of those things where the year is off by one year because of difference in calendars (or something?) and he may have actually been born in 1707, which one somewhat reliable website gives as his birth date

posted by J. West
I often see discrepancies in birth records from this era where the day and the month are the same but the year is off by 1. So maybe 13 Jan 1707 is the correct DOB? Makes sense given the marriage date.
posted by Mark Burch
Okay, great. Many thanks. Looks like they should be merged.

Hey Mark,

I see a while back you added to the Strickland line formally with some parents. Was there any documentation or was it just off of circumstance of location (Wake county and timeframe) or DNA? If DNA, do we have anyone that traces on the Strickland side that we can compare to the Bolton side (or already did this comparison)?

posted by Kyle Bolton

I see that I added Sampson Strickland as the father of Sarah Catherine. I can't remember why I did that and there doesn't seem to be any documentation for it. Feel free to detach him if you think it is not correct.

Hello 8th cousin Mark.

Thanks for your work on Lemma Georgia (Chappelear) Burdett (1882-1957).

Regards, Cousin Luke

Delighted that you are looking into Amasa and Co., I left breadcrumbs on Amasa Parker which may or may not prove useful. Feel free to wipe those out as you progress.

Regards, Jack Parker

Thank you Mark for being so helpful! I've not been at the too long and it can get very overwhelming at times so I truly appreciate those who take the time and trouble to be so meticulous about details. It seems the further out we go in a "tree" the more help with accuracy we can get the better. Edward Coward (Coward-69) opens the door to fill in some of the elusive blanks in my tree and I most certainly appreciate that.

Dear Mark, thank you for your suggestion to merge Flegenheimer-27 into Flehenheimer-11. I have the possibility to look into the birth, marriage and death registers of the Tairnbacher Jewish community (1810 to 1869) - Landesarchiv Baden-Württemberg, Generallandesarchiv Karlsruhe. There only was a difference of the family name, everything els (birth and so on) was equal.

Explanation of this difference: The name Flehenheimer in Baden was used in the first decades until later it changed into Flehenheimer. Sometimes a g was written for a h, but spoken like h or ch. F. e. Gretchen you could also write Gretgen. Mädchen (girl) like Mädgen. In the time of German author Johann Wolfgang Goethe it was so, he himself wrote so. The same you can say looking at Fle-g-enheimer and Fle-h-enheimer. The family name Flehenheimer was adopted by Baden jews in the year 1809 when they were forced by the state to have a civil, legal or real family name (instead of Marx bar Aron, Aron bar Marx, Isaak bar Marx, Marx bar Isaak). It was the civil name everyone had in the German countries. Origins of the name Flehenheimer: Often the surname of the jews remembered the place they or their forefathers or foremothers once came: f. e. Kissinger (from Kissingen), Weiler (from Weiler or Weil), Elsässer, Bamberger, Michelbacher, Sinsheimer, Mannheimer (from Monheim or Mannheim) and so on. The Flehenheimers dreived from Flehingen. An expression for Flehingen in old official papers is Flehenheim. Thank you that you posted the line that leads from the German Jewish Flegenheimers to Dutch Schultz. This was the main interest for me to enlighten his genealogical origins. I wasn't quite sure... Thank you again, have a good time, greetings from Southern Baden from Eva

Thanks for your help. I never thought I would be able to connect Dutch Schultz.
