The sources on this profile and on the profile of Adam Mott provide the proof.

There is source for George and John Mott being brothers. Is the documentation on the children of Adam proven to be COMPLETE such that any other children are automatically invalidated? Same question with regards to James Mott.

Mott-1616 and Mott-23 appear to represent the same person because: same dates and wife, the parents (Adam and Elizabeth) have been proven to be incorrect. Please merge these profiles as they and their descendants are duplicates.

There are no sources that prove the parents that were shown on this profile. Adam is well documented and did not have a son named George.

I am going to removed Elizabeth unknown. As I had indicated on the George Mott that was just merged into this profile, these were two different lineages. The daughter Margritt that married Darnell is NOT the daughter of George Mott that married Elizabeth Pigg.
