Just curious, why is it important to you to add which number child a person is of their parents?

Hi John,

Since you manage, or have contributed to, a number of Prentice profiles I invite you to check-out the new One Name Study for the Prentice surname.

Best - RP

Thank you for bring the Beriah Grant issue to my attention. He was an illegitimate son of Mercy/Marcy, who is actually in a different profile. He is not the son of her older sister Mary. And no they are not the same person. Both Mary and Mercy are mentioned in both of their parents wills.

I wondered if you study Babcock or just volunteered to clean things up. I am searching Babcock from Vermont and whom they go back to MA or RI as this is my grandmother's granfather David Babcock. is trying to throw a Joseph Babock in and I've never heard my family talk about a Joseph. Just David Jr. and his father David Sr. (another Robert Babcock in senses put them together the 3) Sure on wives names. Thank you for all you do. :) brown81360

Just wanted to thank you for all your hard work recently on the various York profiles - I think I was one of the only ones working on them extensively for a while there.

If you manage to find any information uniting the NY York families with the ones from CT, ME, or NC, that would be amazing; I've been looking for a couple of years, and my aunts have been looking for nearly a decade, so my hopes aren't too high!

I hope the Winter season treats you well in the meantime. Thanks for being such a force for good and sourcing in WikiTree.

Hello Emma,

Thank you for your observation about the Ruth (Denison) Kingsbury profile. I would ask in return for you to investigate whether the Wheeler reference that I posted to the profile is wrong about her parents being Elizabeth Saltonstall and John Denison. I would grant that Wheeler could have been wrong (his publication in 1900 was not infallible), however I see no evidence to date that it is wrong on this particular subject. As you investigate this, keep in mind that Ruth was raised not by her father John Denison (he died 14 Sep 1689 when she was 3 years old, and her mother re-married 3 years later to Roland Cotton). In truth, we do not yet know whether she may have been raised as a foster child by others, such as the "John Denison the weaver" and his wife Ruth Ayer, as you have just recently re-attached to her profile. Nevertheless, all evidence presented to date shows that her birth father, John Denison (the one who was born 22 Sep 1665 at Ipswich, MA), was married to Elizabeth Saltonstall in 1684 at Ipswich, and Ruth was their first child, born 7 Jun 1686.

I observed the FAG reference that has been posted to the profile, but I would caution that FAG is unsourced, thus is often misleading. For example, the actuarial dates of her ostensible "father" in FAG do not match that of her father John Denison in the published reference.

Might you be able to post to the profile any credible primary reference sources that may be evident so as to sort out the parentage of this person? I would be interested in seeing this matter resolved, as she was my 3rd cousin. Might she be likewise related to you? Thanks, John

Hi John,

You have made a very significant change on by switching her parents from those who have been traditionally held to be her parents without adding any notes showing why you made this change.

Can you please add notes to the profile showing why you made this change? I see you added a source, but it tells nothing about the change.

Thanks, Emma

T, as you can see from the changes sections of her profile(s) and the profile of her spouse, the issues that I raised pertaining to the match have since been resolved by others who made the relevant changes, so the merge can now proceed.

Hey John,

You rejected a match of Babcock-3327 and Babcock-2785, however, they have identical parents and identical birthdates, identical husbands (2785 is attached to them, 3327 has them listed in the biography section) I don't understand the comment that you left as to the reason you rejected the matches???????
