"A people which take no pride in the noble achievements of remote ancestors will never achieve anything worthy to be remembered with pride by remote descendants." (Macauley)
Many moons ago, started the journey of discovering all I could about my ancestors. Discovered 9x's maternal great-grandfather, Ezekiah-Hezechias Roughton, b. 1594, https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/raughton-4 emigrated from England to the Colony of Jamestown[www.jamestowne.org] in the year 1619, to help build the first institution/college in British America.
Along the "Genealogy Journey" discovered Margaret Dauson, (9xGgm) b. 1600 d. 1659; https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Dauson-5 was one of the 57 "young maids" sent to Virginia in 1621 by the Virginia Company of London, and she became the wife of Ezekiah.

WikiTree's mission is to create a single family tree with one profile for every person. Having two profiles for one person works against this goal. Our Honor Code reads: "We collaborate. When we share ancestors we work together on the same ancestor profiles."
Duplicates were created purposely, defeats the purpose of a single family tree. "Our mission is to grow an accurate single family tree that connects us all and is freely available to us all."

Keete, very nice, and explanatory. Now, how about you put that above my biography of our 4x Ggm, Elizabeth Brashears-Hyden-290? Eventually, they will be merged together. I shall not change, or delete any of your work, promise! Assured you will do the same with my bio of our shared Elizabeth. Cheryl Givens
