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, etc....my 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:

I'm not sure if you're saying Francis is not one of those sons? It's unclear what you are suggesting.

My only problem with merging Randolph-2481 and Randolph-2147 is the place of death. Since the merge would be to 2147, I'm not convinced that he died in England. What do you suggest I do about that?

You were very helpful to me when I first became interested in the Binkley profiles. I am now interested in helping the Binkleys with some of their Landis ancestors. Pre-1700 Landis profiles are quite a mess. I have noticed that Catie Deiley (Deiley-2)is not responding to merge requests. She has made no contributions since 24 Jan 2016. Can you or someone at Wikitree contact her, and if she's not interested or is unresponsive, please get her profiles orphaned so those interested in pre-1700 Landises can go to work?

I simply merged the UNKNOWN into Allen "edited the data for Rachel Allen. (Merged Unknown-302416 into Allen-4384: clear duplicate)" They clearly were the same person. I then looked at the Gifford-796 and found that those two needed more research to do so. However an unknown to the known? What was the issue?
