Grinter-39 and 221 were merged per your excellent work. I added Marriage event proof and a few more facts. Thanks

Thanks for the proposal to merge the two Samuel Torrs, but I think it's a bit premature based on the information you have on your Samuel. Do you have any more info on your Samuel (eg county of birth, place of birth)? It would be great if they were the same guy.

Thanks for the note Bob. The funny thing about even seeing that lead ... if the profile had not had a red category I was trying to fix, I wouldn't have seen it (or thought to look - a New York-born/died with Virginia militia service? weird!).

I tell new folks who want more info about WikiTree before volunteering that it's one of those things that the more you put in, the more you get out. And lately, I'm finding it's got a lot of karma going too... I'm forever being rewarded for working way out of my field with tidbits like I found on Woolsey-802!

Cheers, Liz

Hello Bob, at your suggestion I have merged the profile for Joshua B. Parks into your original upload adding the dates that I was able to confirm. I also added two photos of Joshua that were added to his profile by my 2nd cousin, Bette Vittetoe Bruce, who was named after Joshua's sister, Susan Elizabeth 'Bette' Parks Brown. There are many more documents pertaining to Joshua's life that can be uploaded if you wish. Patrick M. Parks
