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
  4. Ancestor #: A040097, - Wentle Fockler.

RE: Siegfried-10: My source in my private file simply lists this profile on wikitree that has been edited by others.

I did click on the link under sources (see here) and it took me to PROMINENT FAMILIES OF MAXATANY in the CENTENNIAL HISTORY OF KUTZTOWN on - but there doesn't seem to be any mention of his parents there.

Hi Robin, in August 2016 you left a comment on the profile of John Tyler (Tyler-2987). I have worked with the manager and the profile has been corrected to reflect available records. If you would remove the comment you left as it is no longer relevant to the profile. Thanks. Mike

Hello, you commented over this person's mother being too young:

According to the source on geni, the mother was likely born sometime in the 1400s while her son was born in the early 1500s. To compensate for my lack of a pre-1500 badge (I'm lazy sorry haha) I indicated the mother was simply born before 1500 (not that she was just over 10 years old). If this was too confusing I can merge her out. I just assumed that's how it worked. Apologies if I was wrong.

I found on the WT news that WT pledges to be free FOREVER!! That was the first time that I noticed the Forever word. For a long time I've been concerned that it would end up like F.A.G. I think that WikiTree.Com should use Free Forever Website when the public finds it. It may persuade the public to use WT instead of using other Tree Builders that may be free for now, or were in the past and it may persuade users of other site users to move their existing data to WT. THE ONLY FAMILY TREE BUILDER THAT PROMISES THAT IT WILL REMAIN FREE FOREVER! This might be a good G-G post in some form?

Is WT listed as a corporation, LLC, Non Profit entity or Privately owned? Thanks Ed

Thank you for the comment on Montgomery-5436. The profile I created was recently merged. But, yes, those census records should be removed. I am hoping the individual who posted them will remove them. But if its not done soon they should be removed. I will keep an eye on it to make sure it gets done. Thanks again!

Hi Robin, Thank you so much for your comments and your tips, I will certainly follow up and read what you suggested.

Thanks, Robin. I always do some editing after I complete a merge, but sometimes it's much harder than others!

Robin, Back in November you proposed a merge of two John Orchard profiles. the resulting profile for John Orchard (Orchard-113) now appears conflated. The "Virginia" John Orchard is listed as having arrived in Virginia in 1634 and in Greer's Early Virginia Immigrants, 1623-1666, on p. 245 his wife Ann is imported to James City County in 1637.

Thank you for the article! A family member created these and I have no idea why he is no longer the manager. I will look them over and make sure everything is up to date :)
