Thanks for suggesting the merger of Edward Fry 772 and Edward Fry 5679, they are one and the same. 5679 was possibly my 2nd G. Grandfather.

Hi I am Irene snoddons grandaughter. Daughter of her only son and I also have a brother. My father is still living. I took a DNA test and just waiting for the results. We all lived in the same city Sudbury Ontario. My grandfather was Frederick Gratwicke. If you have any questions or comments please message me I'd be happy to help. Many pictures as well.

Thank you for your recommended mergers on the Ott-Harshberger lines. The previous entries were all made as personal information from N. Ott. My father was Norman Ott but he passed away in 2008. When I looked up N. Ott that person did not appear to have any connection to these families. Can you comment on this?
posted by Susan Ott
No, sorry I was just going through a list of suggested merges and those were on the list.
posted by S Stevenson
but when the merges take place, use your dates, as the other profiles look like they have just rough guesses, except for the child at the bottom of the branch which has the same exact details.

Hi S,

I was prompted by a question on G2G to have a look see whether Santa's elves had made any progress on your brick wall great-grandmother, and discovered your DNA connection to Walter and Susannah Gowenlock, whose eldest son married my 2g-grandfather's sister, Caroline Davison.

So I had a look at the work I've done on Gowenlocks, and I'm wondering whether you're aware that Sarah Ann Doyle (Page) was not, as it says on the 1871 census, the daughter of James and Ann Doyle, but their biological granddaughter? Her birth registration has no mother's maiden name and her baptism names her mother as Sarah.

I'm hoping that Sarah Ann being a (?half) sister of the children of William Gowenlock and Sarah Doyle will make sense of your DNA matches with these families. Does it also raise the possibility that your great-grandmother was born a biological daughter of William and Sarah?

You may, of course, have been down this route before and found a dead end, in which case just ignore me. :) Either way, I wish you luck in finding your way to the truth,


posted by L Parr
I have not been down this route. I really appreciate your comments. The Gowenlock & Doyle DNA matches have been a real puzzle to me. Every time I get a new Gowenlock DNA match I expand the branch at Familysearch. will investigate. thanks for reaching out.

S Stevenson: You added bio info on Monroe Cornish Mayo (1894-1981), my granduncle. I added his two daughters thru marriage with Bertha Irene Kelsay (1889-1961).

Also note from his Find A Grave # 63423912, his death 20 October 1981 at Modesto, Stanislaus County, CA and burial at Mission City Memorial Park, Santa Clara, CA. If you have added info please share - Thank you

Hi S,

You added Matilda Kelley (1843 - 1937) (Kelley-373), and she's listed as the wife of James H. Kelley. I'm listed as the creator of his listing, but it's been 11 years, and I don't recall the source. Are you sure she married someone with the same last name, or is it possible that the link I found was actually through Matilda, and not her husband James H., whose last name might not be Kelley? Thanks

Hi, Thanks for the suggestion and approval to merge Webster-11371 into Webster-6747. They were indeed the same individual. We now need to merge the two wives (Meade-1176 and Mead-5198), and any attached descendants. I started this process last week but needed approval from somebody in the Meade-1176 permission list to complete the merge. I am assuming you are on the list since you approved the merge of the husband. Could you let me move forward with this wife merge? Thanks. John Kuoni.

Hi, You seem to be having a lot of activity in and around my tree and from what I can tell by stalking your comments you seem to be a honorable person. I haven't had the time to devote to my tree since the pandemic started and I'd like to give you the go ahead to make any changes or merges that you would like. How do I do that again? Thanks, Terry Reinheimer

I'll update the Niagara Movement WikIPedia Page about Smith. Thanks for finding that error! Emma
Please explain to me why you added Absalom C Gillilan as a son of John Gilleylen. There is no evidence to support this whatsoever. According to the Familysearch tree which is linked on Absalom's page his parents were John Gillilan and Rachel Cook. John Gilleylen and his wife Rebecca Cook were never in Ohio. John Gilleylen has a probate file in Monroe County, Mississippi where he has a will and the heirs of his estate are named and there is not any Absalom. This is the Ancestry link to the page. [1]

Dear S. Stevenson,

Adrian George Iselin is noted (in his biography) as being a primary ancestor of the ISELIN family in the USA, and yet I am having difficulty finding sources linking my family roots to him. My lines appear to end in FRANCE. Would you have time to help with this, or know someone who can? I really appreciate all your work! S. Browning

Thank you for your reply, S. Stevenson.

Hi, S. Stevenson,

I should have replied to you awhile back about Charlotte Fryer Hankel. She's my great grandmother and I have more info about her that I can send to you. However I'm leaving tomorrow on a road trip so can't respond until the end of the month. I'm guessing that you're descended from one of her three sons who moved to Canada. [email address removed]

Thanks for helping straighten out the tree. I appreciate a recent merge you proposed and all you do to better things. Cheers!

Hello, S!

Thank you for looking into the profile for Joshua Miller. I have certainly seen reference to the Millard parents you have added to the profile. However, I am yet to see any sourced evidence. Please add sources to link these parents. I have noted in the research notes that this parentage is to be questioned until evidence is supplied.

Hello, S!

Thanks for all the work you accomplished during our Connect-A-Thon 2020. It is amazing how many more profiles were created and added to our Shared Tree. You have every right to be pleased with your efforts!

Kind regards,

I received the notice concerning the merge of Ratliff-1621 and Ratcliff-614. The info that I entered for John Moses Ratliff came from research my brother did via There are some differences in dates but overall there is much that is comparable and therefore I have no objection to the merge. If you have some documentation concerning the dates, etc. I would very much appreciate knowing about them. The Ratliff branch of my ancestry had been "missing" until recently and I look forward to confirmation. Thank you!

Hi S,

I noticed you working with the Unknown Vieira profiles. There is a process in place for working with unconnected unknown profiles. Please review the Unknowns Project page to learn about that. Also review the guideline for people who never existed.

Please don't merge away any more profiles. Let me know if you have any questions,


posted by Debi (McGee) Hoag
Thanks for helping to recycle profiles from the Recycle Unknowns Category, S. I noticed that some of the Unknown profiles that you are choosing are not the same sex as that of the final profile. Please make sure to use a profile of the same sex. It helps keep things cleaner in the database.

On 29 Nov 2018 at 11:54 GMT S Stevenson wrote: "Adams-24983 and Adams-9931 appear to represent the same person because: merge parents first, same name, same spouse, same death date." S Stevenson, you are correct these two Adams records are the same but the conflict of Parents' names of William Adams must first be resolved before doing so. Al Adams and Michael Kerley have listed different sets of parents. Do you think it would just be best to remove the parents of both records and merge them? Thanks, Russ Adams, Birmingham, AL

I do hope you’ll join, even if it’s only to upload and share a few photos.

You are suggesting a merge between Strobl-67 and Strobl-72. Do not merge.

Brigitte Pachmayr was married 3 times, twice to a Franz Strobl, but to 2 different Franz Strobls. The first Franz Strobl was born abt 1700 in Mitterscheyern, Bavaria, married abt 1743 in Hohenkammer and his father was Andreas. Her 3rd marriage was to Franz Stroble, son of Michael Strobl and Anna, born abt 1720 in Aresing, Bavaria, and the marriage took place 27 Nov 1753 in Hohenkammer. These are 2 different men.
