Hi Esmé's 

Thanks so very much for your participation in the Data Doctor weekly Challenge. Every suggestion you cleared (over 600 ) made our Tree that much better. The WikiTree community appreciates the work you are doing.

I am intrigued. My great-grandfather Jeremiah Galvin seems to have been added to WikiTree by you? His details are correct - born Kanturk, Cork, Ireland in 1833, married to Frances Kelleher, father to Michael Galvin (among others). Source is family bible entry. The bible is in my family's possession so where did your entry come from?

I am trying to find descendents of his siblings, but have had very limited success so far.

I did not add your Grandfather, you did. Refer to the changes log -

In 30 Sep 2018, I just added the FamilySearch source

I saw you deleted a question from yourself on my Grandmother, Myra Barron. Do you need some information on her?

Thank you, Esme,

I adopted joshua Holland-571, and never did any work on this profile.

He and I are not related so am removing myself his manager. Please feel free to make whatever corrections are needed.

Thanks for helping with the editing. I'm new so still learning the wiki code and its quite time-consuming. I'm working on multiple family member profiles at the same time, so mistakes and duplications bound to happen.

Esmé, it would be great to merge the two Amon Butler as you have suggested. I'm afraid of accidentally erasing something if I do it just now. Will get to it within the next few days. Are you able to share family information about him? That would be very welcome. Have a good weekend. -- Connie

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Effie (Boatright) Harris isn't the daughter of John S. Moody & Caroline Lightsey, but is the daughter of their daughter, Emily Moody who married Rueben C. Boatright. Not sure how to remove her from the Moody family.
