Sorry for any concern I may have caused. John William Pleasants is the same person we both refer to. In my tree, I show him as William, but on further investigation, his name is John William Pleasant. As far as Dorothy versus Jane Larcome I would defer to my resource as Ancestry.com, with the date for marriage between John William and Jane Larcome as 29 November 1670. I am in the process of matching my GEDcom and will not make the mistake of changing anything else.

You and I share 13.6 cMs on chromosome 12, so we must be cousins somewhere.

Thank you Misty for welcoming me into WikiTree way back in March 2018. I must have become busy because here it is September 2018 and I'm just logging back into Wikitree. I usually use Family Tree Maker to keep my personal trees in and use Ancestry to look up individuals.

Glad your my Greeter because I know I have Louisiana connections. Take care

Thanks for all your work in Magna Carta Project Misty! As requested, I've removed you as Gateway Guardian for Calthorpe-140. You have quite a while before you need to fulfill the third participation requirement, so you're still a badged member (although you can hid the badge if you feel the need).

Cheers, Liz

Kimberly, thank you so much for getting back to me. I do appreciate that you care enough to ask. I am so slow, I couldn’t figure out how to get on to the url you sent. Actually, when i clicked it, it said it was no longer there and I couldn’t figure out how to do the other option.

Didn’t know about the green tabs, but I will try them.

Thanks for the help. I will endeavor to persevere.
