Hi Donald,

I have noticed a number of errors regarding findagrave links within the profiles you manage, as well as they lack the proper privacy setting. I would be happy to fix them if you are unable, as long as I am added to the trusted list. I'm sorry to bug you about this; I am trying to correct any errors in my ancestry and these keep popping up.

Hi cousin! You match my dad on gedmatch, M831157. Its distant but that's what I expected. Common ancestors William Canaday/Catherine Waughop. This also happens to be my dad's mtdna line (h1b), which means your ancestors in line between John Moxley and Catherine Waughop should be the same as well.

A new member joined with the surname Bish. It reminded me of a very sweet woman Mrs. Bish (perhaps Pat? probably born around 1930) from my hometown of Hobart, Indiana. Perhaps she was related to some of the folks you've entered. Anyway, happy Wednesday! - Your 9th cousin Karen

Now that I've understood how the managers work you should be able to connect all the Margaret Ledgerwood children to William V. Marlow.

I see that you have an interest in DNA study and have taken a DNA test. Would you be interested in starting a One Name Study for either your surname or another name you are researching? The purpose of the One Name Study is to coordinate any WikiTreers who are researching one particular surname and to provide a resource for collaboration.
