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.

Where did Carl and Carolyn get the information for the middle name Reuben/correct spelling? I do not find that name in any data, and espically the history as written by Samuel Rutherford Houston.

Hi. It is true that relationships have been severed and dates adjusted without sources in what I call the Viking profiles. It has been going on for years, I think. I am probably the only person who has read everything on all the pre-1000 profiles from the region and I think a lot of it stemmed from pure frustration. Now we have established the policy that the dates don't count for anything I doubt it will happen again. Main problem, of course, is that no one ever sourced anything. Original source had no dates for anything. C

Robin I looked at the link you gave for how to propose new rules but it just says to start by proposing in G2G. I've proposed many changes in G2G. It is indeed a problem that on Wikitree it will not be easy to even find such proposals by me or anyone else. The merging problems have been discussed many many times though and change proposals have been mentioned in many such discussions.

I want to merge the two McClellands but does the oldest cite sources? Source Colonial FAMILIES OF THE UNITED STATES. Thomas Stanhope Mcclelland in the Virginia Biographical Encylopedia, painting of Thomas housed in Columbia University. Colonial families of the Us contradicts itself?? Anyway before I merge I would like to correctly add source. but do not know the managers source. Please advise

Thank you, Robin, for your message about checking pending merges.

I am trying to merg my Carrington, Tutwiler, Cabell line. A warning pops up about the age of son Robert, born 1808. by prisilla Sims (Paul died in 1818 and was born 1733) Should I just merge anyway and research later. I cannot merge the descendents without this fix Thanks

I merged the ones I could. A couple of them I already agreed to the merge, but waiting on the other person to complete it. Thanks for the heads up. I thought that when I clicked merge on the email, and merging on the site was good enough, guess not.

Thanks.. i like a challenge.... lol so grabbed about 350 "family" orphans from my ancestors the other day.. have sorted them between unsourced and sourced now and the unsourced are down to the S's for the "200" mark ... My Hargis and Bewley adoption projects panned out well so expanded it.. However new adoptions are on pause for a bit.. lol

In my "transit" time Have been making my way through one of the data doctor lists and found one person who seemed to make a few thousands fully unsourced profiles and thought that I likely had a few fairly distant lines in the same state.. so took and look and saw that it likely would be good if I got basic sources on them to start, cleaned up and into my round robin updating..

It's a great way to figure out where that random DNA match belongs!
