Thanks Carl for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz

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

Hi Carl, I do know my line including Benjamin Briggs 1813. But, there are so many Benjamin Briggs (BB) out there that some clarification is needed. I am only related to BBs that were born in lower NYS and/or Orange, Greene and Westchester Counties. My BB born 1813 married Catherine Van Tassel and is the son of Joseph Barber Briggs 1785 married to Hannah Mieks 1783. JBB was born to a BB born 1765 married to Charity Barber (unk dates). BB 1765 was born to Henry 1745 and Hannah (unk dates). Please respond as to whether these people relate to your tree. Thanks for your inquiry.

Hi Carl,

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:

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!

I thank you for thanking me, but I did a little digging and realized the following:

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.

Carl: I understand what needed to be done on the Savage-3188 profile. I hope you approve of the result. Now that Sarah and her children are gone, I agree, Savage-3188 should be merged into Savage-116. I will initiate the merge hoping the 116 profile managers make the final merge and format.

Please let me know if you have issues with the result. Regards, David Holbrook
