Hi David

Thank you for your note. Please let me explain, in leaving the source I was trying to establish a relationship trail from son to his father and mother, and then to his grandfather on his mothers side. The line goes John Norton, son of Richard Norton, by Isabel, daughter of William Tempest. See pedigree below.


Thank you for working to make WikiTree the most accurate it can be.

Hi David; someone merged my Henry Cornett with your Henry Cornell Cornell-1143 and it's not making sense to me. I have a Mary McWhorter who married a Henry Cornell, had two children by him, a son who died young and a daughter, then Mrs. Cornett married Mr. John E Evans, and the daughter was sometimes known as Evans. But was married as a Cornett, there is also a death bond on Mr. Cornett. So if you could explain the merge, I'd really appreciate it.

David, I'm new at this and I was trying to attach Sarah Townsend-1735 to my grandmother and somehow created a new one (Townsend-5365) that needs to be merged with yours. I tried that and now it says it's set as Rejected Matches. I think this is because yours (the correct one) shows the spouse (Wm Bigbee) but isn't in the name of Sarah Townsend-1735. When I created the profile, I added the married name. I'm not sure what to do next but I want to connect Sarah Townsend-1735 to my grandmother(Wilma Bigbee-13), the sibling to Frank and Belle. This is apparently new info for you too. Thanks,

Daniel [1747-1833] who married Lydia [Wright] Sawins was not a son of Henry Townsend and Elizabeth Titus of Orange Co., NY. He was mostly likely the son of Ruddock Townsend and Mary Covenoven who md in Egg Harbor in 1736.

Henry Townsend had 7 children but no Daniel nor did he have Gerardus whose parentage is still unknown.

There is YDNA testing for all three of these men. See

Hi David! I have traced by family back to Cornelius Colburn-747 and later discovered there is a Cornelius Coburn-243 in Wiki Tree and I believe them to be the same person. I would like to work with you toward this end. Thank you

Thank you for all of the work you've done here. I added some children to Denman-233 & Wasburn-1004, which now connects a bunch of people I was unable to connect before. Thank you very much.

David, in September, you attached parents to Briggs-397 without adding a source. As the narrative and various comments attached to the profile indicate, his origins have not been confirmed. Please add your evidence that the John son of Henry was the same man who settled in Portsmouth RI. Thank you.
