The only info I have on Margaret McBrides maiden name is oral family history at this point. I've tried to confirm it with some paperwork, but have not yet been able to do so. If I find any I will make sure to let you know. She's one of several on my family tree I have been working hard on.

Hi Gayle,

Thank you for helping eliminate duplicates on WikiTree.

I see you proposed a merge for John Foster's duplicate profiles. When proposing a merge, please be sure the direction of the merge is into the lowest numbered profile for the correct last name at birth. The merge you proposed was reversed. Here is a link to information on merge direction:

Thank you, Sharon - WikiTree Ranger

If you are waiting for a merger from Marie (Ward-3293) Mills you can go to link [unresponsive profile manager] at the bottom of the profile page you are working on and file it out and send it. It has been 60 days since she has contributed.
