The lack of sourcing for George's parents was noted 2 years ago. Should his parent at the very least be marked as uncertain? Apparently his ancestry is addressed in the book, The Genealogy of Samuel Blanchard Ordway by Dean Crawford Smith pub. 1990 by NEGHS

Hi Jeanie, since there has been been no response from the other profile managers, and the parents have been researched and proven false, the better direction to go is notation on the 3 profiles then disconnect.

Thanks.

I have removed unproven parents. No ancestry for George Corliss was addressed in the Samuel Blanchard Ordway Genealogy.
There is no evidence that Thomas was father of George, aside from the Corliss genealogy which states that rumors exist but no evidence has been found. Secondly, if Thomas was born in 1603, he was 14 when George was born... Shouldn't these parents be disconnected?
