Sherwood-1662 and Sherwood-626 appear to represent the same person because: The discrepencies that delayed the previous merge-match have been corrected in Sherwood-626, sources have been added, and the biography re-written to reflect the sourced information, including two additional wives and names of 11 children. I will create profiles for the additional spouses after the merge is completed and add children as appropriate sources are prepared.

John is 22 degrees from Cari Starosta, 18 degrees from Marie-Antoinette d'Autriche and 13 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
