I meant to ask about Verlinda's name, shown here as "Verlinda Magruder" instead of "Verlinda (Magruder) Beall". Thanks!

If you are talking about Sarah no it's not proven that she was daughter of Beall I believe it was Ninian. If you could find a source that would be great

Magruder-24 last name is shown as "unknown" instead of "Beall." Is this correct?

We both agree that Magruder is the correct LNAB. McGruder-77 should be merged into Magruder-158 with McGruder-158 being the New profile. I thought that's what I set up, but I'll let you do it this time!

Mcgruder-77 and Magruder-158 appear to represent the same person because: Same person, same husband. Magruder is the proper LNAB for this time period in Maryland.

Magruder-24 and Magruder-61 are not ready to be merged because: The differences in the name, etc the parents.

Magruder-24 and Magruder-61 appear to represent the same person because: There seems to be some question as to the mother of Verlinda and the wife(s) of Samuel Magruder Sr. These need to be investigated through the sources so as to come to some facts as this is an important part of two family trees.
