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,

Thank you for the message on Henry Washington. There are some things that are out of whack again and a few I have never been able to correct because of PPP status.

Washington-64 is the Henry married to Elizabeth Storke. His father is Washington-4 whose wife is Bailey-15. This isn't clear at present because Washington-370 needs to be merged into Washington-4. I believe it will ask for a resolution of relationships when the merge is approved.

There are additional changes to be made above Henry Washington-4 - I will message you.

Thanks! Elizabeth

I am new to Wikitree, and have been manually inputting data, as I cannot upload the GEDCOM. I need to know how to attach info (marraige records, Census etc) after obtaining the info through the Search tabs. The information is available through FamilySearch, (LDS), but I can't attach it.

Thank you for spotting the Henry Dudley/ Plantangenet/York duplicates. I feel very guilty as was about to propose merges last week and also contact a mentor but our internet went down after I posted the comment. I had forgotten all about it when we got it back ... and now there are more duplicates.

Yes Robin I am working to untangle a lot of mistakes in the Boone line partially because my paternal second great grandmother is Boone-1526 but some of these profiles are a real mess. I did adopt a lot of them but there are still a couple of hundred still out there because my watchlist got too big.

It appears they are the same Thomas Hanks. I am more than flexible on this. Please do as you see fit. However, I am taken a little aback at the disparaging of my sources when Vicky's appear not to be much better. At least with mine, you can click on them and see the origin of the source. Not so much on Vicky's. Thank you.

Hello Robin,

I clicked on your proposed merge selection of Thomas Jefferson Adams 525 & 30002. To confirm the merge on my end. I hope I did it right. I apologize for creating a duplicate profile. I did it my first or 2nd week on here. Thank you for your help. Peggy Hefner

Wheeler-9723 and Wheeler-9453 are not ready to be merged because: The manager of the other profile has incorrect links that would cause much confusion for the Wheeler ancestry. I tried to clean it up but found the remedy with a merge would cause a serious problem in the generational alignment.
