are my 23rd great grandfathers, but, alas, through a Questionable Gateway Ancestor


I was born and raised in California. My parents both came from Ohio, my father's family brought him to California when he was 3 and my mother moved to California as a young career woman during World War II. My interest in genealogy started with some family dead ends and lots of rumors. Most of the rumors were great leads, but untrue. And the dead end is in the Becker family (my mother's family). We can go back to her great grandfather John J. Becker.... he was killed in an accident when his son, John Frederick (her grandfather) was 2 and the mother, Mary, either died shortly before or after along with another son, George. I found a beautiful grave marker with all the names and dates. None of this information was ever passed along in the family, so we have no idea where John Frederick grew up, nor where his parents came from, original dead end is still the one have not been able to break through. I hope with my work in Wikitree, I will eventually find my answers.

Then there are my Patriots...Isaac Lee is my NSDAR Patriot Ancestor. My next challenges are proving my connections to:

  1. Ancestor #: A111729- Van Swearingen
  2. Ancestor #: A024956-Joseph Conger
  3. Ancestor #: A100868-John Adam Schlott

Hi Robin,

Thanks for your message on my page. I'm still learning to navigate Wiki Tree, so thanks for the heads up with the merging. I thought I would be helpful to merge some pending merges while I had a few minutes spare - usually while I'm having a cup of tea. In these moments, I don't really have time to stop to research into each person that I merge - I'm happy to read through the merge data and make a careful decision based on my findings, but editing profiles etc takes a lot of time.

I had thought that the editing of the profiles would be the profile owners responsibility, given they know the details of the person? But perhaps I'm incorrect. Perhaps if I have to edit every single merge that I complete then I should just stick to my own profiles that I manage.

Ok lead the way. I'm rusty on the Ellis line, but I would really like to know if our family is right about the way the tree leads up for me.

Robin, William and Henry Freeman are assigned as the children of Nathaniel John Freeman and Elizabeth Stokes. I believe "Nathaniel"'s profile is either conflated or based on outdated research. I propose to edit the profile, spouse, and parentage to reflect the conclusions of Mosher Merrill Hill's work "John Freeman of Norfolk, Virginia..." (1994) and Freeman researcher Steve Lawson ( (2008) Please let me know if you have any objections. Thank you.

Robin, I just saw some of your comments (esp on John Hughes Hughes-3469 (trying to figure out where I left off), and noticed that a lot has happened. I'm assuming it's safe to go ahead and merge the Samuels... (the talk about the double John Hughes was one of the reasons -- along with rejections --

that make it confusing to know when a duplicate exists in the Ellis family).

Thanks for the proposed Ellis merge! ... From what I remember, some other family members stopped some proposed merges based on discrepancies, so there are some duplicates in this family. Somewhere up the tree there's more confusion (last I looked ... a few years back).

Peter Roberts sent me the following message and I wanted to ask your advice about this since you are so knowledgeable about WikiTree matters. Is this something you recommend and if so please explain why?

Hello Les, Please go to your DNA Tests page at

and under Family Tree DNA yDNA add your YSearch ID which is M2S47

Then under AncestryDNA Paternal Lineage, please delete 68606 next to Search ID.

Finally click the SAVE DETAILS button

This is important because, if your ancestry is correct, then you have one of the most extensive direct paternal line ancestral lines known to exist. It (your line) appears to extend back to born about 400 AD.

I welcome any questions. Thank you and sincerely, Peter This message is from Peter Roberts ( Click here for their WikiTree profile: The sender was on this profile page when they sent the message:

Robin it appears that my ancestor Nest Ferch is the most likely connection to Elidir-12 and if so this traces my father's line back to about AD 400 since my line begins with Rhodri Mawr; (in English Roderick the Great) (c. 820-878) who was the first ruler of Wales to be called 'Great', and the first to rule most of present-day Wales.

The son of Merfyn Frych Ap Gwriad king of Gwynedd and Nest ferch Cadell of the royal line of Powys, inherited the kingdom of Gwynedd on his father's death in 844. When his uncle Cyngen Ap Cadell ruler of Powys died on a pilgrimage to Rome in 855 Rhodri inherited Powys. In 872 when Gwgon, his wife’s uncle and ruler of Seisyllwg in southern Wales was accidentally drowned, Rhodri added his kingdom to his domains by virtue of his marriage to Angharad, ferch Meurig. This made him the ruler of the larger part of Wales. Rhodri Mawr faced pressure both from the English and increasingly from the Danes, who were recorded as ravaging Anglesey in 854. In 856 Rhodri won a notable victory over the Danes, killing their leader Gorm (sometimes given as Horm). Two poems by Sedulius Scotus written at the court of Charles the Bald, king of the Western Franks, celebrate the victory of "Roricus" over the Norsemen. In 877 Rhodri fought another battle against the Norse invaders on Anglesey, this time being forced to flee to Ireland. On his return the following year, he and his son Gwriad were said to have been killed by the English, though the precise manner of his death is unknown. When his son, Anarawd Ap Rhodri won a victory over the Mercians a few years later, it was hailed in the annals as "God's vengeance for Rhodri". His son Cadell Ap Rhodri conquered Dyfed, which was later joined with Seisyllwg by Rhodri's grandson Hywel Dda to become Deheubarth. Like his grandfather, Hywel would come to rule to bulk of Wales.
