Happy New Year, Carl!

Carl, red flags are not good. It is difficult when so many names are replicated through a number of generations. You can reverse changes to the profile if it is wrong. i do not see what red flags you are talking about. Sometimes the dates are inaccurate on profiles, especially those not researched well. But they may still be the same individual. Hope that helps.

Carolyn the name was Elizabeth Miller Isbell profife Miller-17918 and the was 3 red alerts when I made the merger I think they are still on her profile in my tree.

i tried to find the Elizabeth Miller, but was not successful. Could you please give me her profile number. I do not recall her. Sounds like it needs work.

My Callahan ancestor is Joseph Callahan who married a Chandler lady.

Rumor had it that he was a son of Joel Callahan ( Rev War pensioner). I set out to see if he were. He is not a son of Joel Callahan. But, we did find the descendancy of Joel. Joel has two children who can be traced. neither are Joseph. The other candidate does not make a lot of sense to me. That would be Henry Callahan md mcMurray.
