In WikiTree there is a message regarding James Hamrick son of Patrick Hamrick. I have James as the son of Patrick Hamrick 1684-1764 and not Patrick Hamrick 1715-1794. I really don't know what you have in your tree. I came in my email and is under the "Challenge of the Week: Improve location names.

Date of father is BEFORE 1820 and son has a date of 1828... this is only for research since I do not yet know the fathers birth... so why do you give the option of before and after if the data is not going to get recognized differently?
