Hi Lynette, thanks for your reply. It was really intended for the gedcom importers. The message that I posted was stating that the Parent/Children relationships exist for those on the list because they are in the QM records and I had forwarded the records to Paula.

I also sent a private email to you. Thanks!

And yes Celine, we have proof that John and Jemima had a son named John b. in 1793. Its in the 2nd image that says birth of son John. Its at the top of the page.

Celine, I'm apologise if we are not working fast enough to your satisfaction. We are all volunteers here, and are members of several projects. Yes, lots of profiles were created and not sourced. Lots of profiles were imported thru gedcoms. Several people thought their ancestry or myheritage tree was enough of a source, which it isn't. Another tree is not an acceptable source. Lots of profiles were orphaned because people didn't understand the concept of Wikitree. And I'm not sure you actually understand wikitree either.

Hi all, I am re-posting a portion of prior question. There has been alot of work since last week. Does anyone have proof that there are more children than the following:

John Johnson/ wife Lydia Hutchins: Johnathan | Strangeman | Benjamin | Ashley Johnson

John Johnson/ wife Jemima>>>> John 9-20-1793 | Joseph 11-1-1795 | Jemima 8-1-1798 | Sally 7-21-1801

Seems like most of other kids were Gedcom imports referencing un-sourced family trees.

I changed the dates,except for the marriage to Jemima to reflect the Quaker calendar. I haven't found where their marriage is recorded. They appeared in Meeting for 3 months and declared their intentions. But their marriage should be recorded as it was for Lydia, with their friends and kin witnessing.

John maarried Lydia on the 15th day of the 4th month 1770. I found thier record. 4th month is June.
posted by Lynette Jester
I didn't find any more on them, so sometime between Aug 4, and Sept 2, 1792 they got married. And since there is a marriage certificate, their is probably a county record.
