I can’t find the error, maybe someone else can have a look.

William Owen "Bill" Irwin This was a good place to post.

There were a couple of bad merges & brothers were mixed up. I’ve fixed that & progessing to making sure the rest of this generation is detailed, and Then will relationship lock it all. Sourcing help appreciated.

Thanks Erica, it was way out of my league.

I need help please. I merged and John Wallis Hyder, Sr is showing up correctly, his mother Catherine (my 4th GGM) is but his father isn't connecting to me for some reason. Will someone see if you can figure out the problem? He is also my 4th GGF but this is what it says,
Benjamin Hyder, Sr. is your first cousin 6 times removed's husband's uncle's wife's uncle. ~~~~ Thank you so much

Benjamin D. Hyder, Sr

Elizabeth Tewksbury

Is this her?

in her 43rd y.
Wife of Dea. John Tewksbury

Vital Records of Manchester, MA
Gravestone Record

William Owen "Bill" Irwin - I found some info on Rootsweb (parents, baptism place and marriage date) as well as her siblings. I have posted this info on her profile.

Cool Beans I found a lot going down the tree Thank you

I can't see Rootsweb to see them to add.i can add her find a grave but that's it

Bill - I posted the Rootsweb connection to Elizabeth's profile. I found it doing a Google search - "Elizabeth Hilton & John Tewksbury". That same search has also yielded Steve Condarcure's database for her father and his offspring - http://www.genealogyofnewengland.com/f_97d.htm#83.

I updated her profile Elizabeth Tewksbury

Hannah Tewkesbury

hoe are they related and can we do a merge

Hannah Tewksbury is NOT related to Elizabeth (Hilton) Tewksbury - different parents for the 2 John Tewksbury profiles.

However, I did find the parents for the mother of Elizabeth (Hilton) Tewksbury's husband - Margaret Foster and John Foster, of Salem. Condarcure had that info - http://www.genealogyofnewengland.com/f_786.htm#39.

Cool Thank You i'll fix it

Margaret Foster is the same as Margaret Foster

Support - http://www.genealogyofnewengland.com/f_177.htm#47 (Condarcure) and https://mathcs.clarku.edu/~djoyce/gen/report/rr09/rr09_459.html

Warning - The parents for the husband (John Foster, of Gloucester) of Margaret Foster do NOT agree with the two sources. The children of Margaret (nee Jacobs) and John Foster are correct.

Also, Sarah Lee birth info does NOT agree to Condarcure. However, it does agree to Vital Records - http://ma-vitalrecords.org/MA/Essex/Manchester/aBirthsT.shtml. ????

can you merge the with Deacon John Tewksbury ?

The parents for Deacon John Tewksbury are Thomas Tewksbury and Rebecca Tewksbury although he is NOT attached to them.

Source - http://www.genealogyofnewengland.com/f_786.htm#39

Bill - Deacon John Tewksbury is NOT the same as Deacon John Tewkesbury because they have different parents.

Please do NOT merge them!!!!

Ok, this is way over my head i will leave it alone. thank you for your help

Sarah Smith and Sarah Smith

her Husband Capt. John Jonathan Smith
has two matches I can't see

i dont know How to describe what is happening here. This is my 5th GGF and he shows up to me as such William Walters His son, who should show up as my 4th GGF shows up as this relationship with me Elijah Ely Walters is your 9th great uncle's second great niece's husband. His profile Elijah Ely Walters Now when I click his son who is my 3 GGF he shows up as such. His profile. Elijah Walters I can't figure out what the problem is. If this is an easy fix please tell me what to do to handle it if I run across this problem again. Thank you all!!!

'side-bar' to Lisa (and other thread viewers!):
This is a case where the path from you to Elijah Ely (4th GGF) was previously calculated before all the current 'connections' were in place establishing the more direct path.

Relationship paths are 'cached' (not recalculated automatically); if there is a little "circle of arrows" (sort of like a recycling symbol) next to relationship text, then you can click that to force a re-calculation.

In this case, that "fixed" the relationship to be what you'd expect. (It doesn't always match what one might expect, though, with more "distant" relationships.)

There is a 'wait-time' before you can force a recalculation on a profile; if you don't see the symbol, wait some days and check again.
