I have noted a lot of profiles that indicate a source of personal knowledge.

There are reasons behind the eighth point in our Honor Code: "We cite sources. Without sources we can't objectively resolve conflicting information." A source provides a way to find out more about the person. Showing sources reduces confusion and duplicates. Here is what our Sources help page says. It has lots of ideas: The Sources Style Guide shows how to enter sources in the biography.

There are records that indicate he was buried 7 March 1781 in Wighill, England. Is it possible he came to the US and went back to England? There is no evidence that any Robert Stephenson ever lived in Cumberland County, NJ during the period of 1750-1780

~~I believe it's entirely possible for him to have returned to England and died and was buried there. It's just all so confusing with such common names.

Will anyone ever know for sure?

I don't think it possible that she was born in Kentucky. Some records indicate she married Robert Stephenson in England and was most likely born there

~~Gerald I'm not understanding why you are feeling that it's not possible for Elizabeth Dean Stephenson to have been born in Kentucky? Please forgive my naiveté.

Hi Gerald,

Congratulations on being Pre-1700 certified! Now it's time to pick a project that best fits the pre-1700 profiles you'll be working on.

Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Do you have some historically-significant ancestors? Look at the list of active projects to see if one fits your needs.

Once you find a project that interests you, visit their project page for more information and to find out how to join. You can also use the Special Following page link to add the project tag to your profile, and you'll be kept up to date on any activity that occurs for that project.

Can't find what you're looking for? Let me know, and I can make some suggestions! :-)

Hi Gerald, I thought that the people you added for Zadock senior and junior, I had already added. Apparently not, thanks so much.
