Because Pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within a project coordinating them is essential. Please ensure location data matches dates of profile, avoid abbreviations, add sources with citations & links for sources to support the data. From wiki ID go to Research to find sources
The US History Project would be of interest. Adding the tag US_History will connect you
Explore Pre-1700 Projects list to find one that fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or topic please read the goals & tasks of the project

How are you? I'm David a WikiTree Mentor. Thanks for adding profiles to WikiTree. There are reasons behind the eighth point in our Honor Code: "We cite sources. Without sources we can't objectively resolve conflicting information." A source provides a way to find out more about the person. Showing sources reduces confusion and duplicates.
Here is what our Sources help page says. It has lots of ideas: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Sources
The Sources Style Guide shows how to enter sources in the biography.
This page describes sources and how to enter sources and is a favorite, Jilaine’s Dream Sources Help Page.
And I'm here to help too, just ask!

There were at least two John Savages in New England in the last half of the 1600's. One was born, died, married and had children in Middletown, CT. (Savage-116)
Another, (Savage-3188), lived in Rehoboth, MA, married Sarah Bowen with all children born in Rehoboth as documented by Barbour:
Elizabeth, of John, Jan. 16, 1672
Sary, March 10 or 13, 1674
Elizabeth, Jan. 11, 1675
Mary, June 5, 1678
John of Middletown's profile (Savage-116) states he never married Sarah Bowen (source 11 in John's profile)
All of the children of John of Middletown are children of Mary Ranny and are born in Middletown, CT.
The children of John of Rehoboth, MA are all born in Rehoboth, MA.
