I didn't see the county on her profile. Just trying to clean up the profiles with Category;South Carolina, which should not have any profiles. Go ahead and add the county you think is most associated with this person.

There is no verification of children on Anne Duckett's profile on Duckett-685. They need to be proven before added to Duckett-27.

No worries Karen about Kemp Holland. You can mix the styles of sources or switch them however they work for you. I just use the span tags mostly because I do some work on notables and I like to list all the sources then slide in the reference tags once I've written the bio. Do whatever works for you.

Scruggs-566; William.

The names of the daughters are not known. John is a son. I suppose that one could assert Edward is a son. Which I think would be wrong.

There is no evidence that the Elizabeth Ferguson who married Lipford was a Scruggs.

I misread the evidence; the error has been corrected.
