Hi, Seely!

Feel free to go ahead and make changes here when you have sources to back them up.

It also looks to me that Elizabeth Arnold and Elizabeth Arnell are probably the same person and should be merged. You can document the difference in birth dates in the biography until a definitive source is found. You might even want to make a note about the difference in spellings in case something turns up later to indicate that an Elizabeth Arnell did exist -- I have a feeling it's probably a transcription mistake of some sort, though.

Thanks for all your hard work here!!

Research on the page for Elizabeth Giles indicates she married Thomas Hawkins and Elizabeth Arnell married Jacob Giles, her brother. The women named Arnell & Arnold should be removed as spouses.

Looks like the name of his wife needs to change. The marriage record give her name as Elizabeth Giles and she must have been the step-daughter of Richard Arndell.

Hawkins-4129 and Hawkins-263 appear to represent the same person because: Same age & location with different wives, but both wives are apparently incorrect. He married Elizabeth Giles

I have a source that states a wife named Elizabeth daughter of Richard & Margaret Giles. Anyone with a source for Elizabeth Arnold?
