Research Notes

  1. ) GED import cited her name as Sophia Johnson. Could be a married surname, but no supporting documentation was provided. Hence Johnson was deleted from her first name field. (May 2018)

Ansley-117 and Johnson-149 appear to represent the same person because: These profiles are for the same person. Sophia Johnson was the daughter of Nathaniel Johnson and Elizabeth (Simonson) Johnson Ansley. Her father was Nathaniel Johnson and her step-father was Ozias Ansley. Ozias Ansley did not father a daughter named Sophia. The Ansley profile needs to merged into the Johnson profile as her surname was Johnson, not Ansley. Otherwise, the two profiles have the same date of birth and death, the same mother, but the Ansley profile contains an implicit error in assuming her step-father was her biological father.

Sophia Johnson is the daughter of Nathaniel Johnson and Elizabeth Hand. (Step-daughter of Ozias Ansley. Surname needs to be changed to Johnson

Dear Randy,

I do not understand whose surname needs to be changed from what to what? I haven't found Ansley-117 as I don't use wiki except for a brief look every now and then. I have proven that Elizabeth's maiden name was Simonson and the article was published in the NYGBS "Record". Charlotte
