Hi Bev, The way things look we are following one of the same lines. So nice to find someone from that far back. I've just joined and am VERY pleasantly surprised by the connections that have been made to my family already. Thanks so much for the additional input. I hope I can help you as well.

Wellman.GED appears to overlap a previously-imported GEDCOM [2 July 2008]

The pages from this GEDCOM have not yet been generated because they appear to match pages from a GEDCOM you have previously imported to WeRelate.

If you have already imported a GEDCOM containing people in this GEDCOM and you want to replace that tree with this GEDCOM, you need to delete that tree first so duplicates aren't created when you import this GEDCOM. Go to the Family Tree page, scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click on the "delete" link next to that tree. Please be aware that any pages in that tree that are being watched by others won't get deleted. Once that tree is deleted you can create a new tree and re-upload this GEDCOM into it. (We're planning to make re-uploading GEDCOM files much simpler later this Fall.)

If you don't think you have already imported a GEDCOM containing people in this GEDCOM, or if the two GEDCOM's don't overlap that much, leave a message for Dallan or send an email to dallan@WeRelate.org and we'll go ahead with the import.

We have similar individuals [15 November 2008]

Are you a Bailey? I am curious why you have many of the same indivifual as I have in my database....

jfbailey@comcast.net--JFBailey 13:43, 15 November 2008 (EST)


No, I am not a Bailey. I have all the Bailey info because of Stephen Harriman Long. He was the husband of Martha Hodgkiss, sister of my ancestor Isabella Hodgkiss. He was a famous explorer and his Long ancestry is well documented. He has Bailey ancestry too. There are several books about Stephen Harriman Long and his explorations. Eventually he was head of the Army Corps of Engineers. One of Isabella's children worked for him on the Red River project. It took a long time to get confirmation that Isabella and Martha really were sisters because Isabella was adopted after her father died, so I collected all the circumstantial evidence that I could find until a second cousin confirmed it.

The Cornelius Dabney overlap comes from the ancestry of the mother of my half-sister's half-sister. I got a little carried away researching the Dabneys because I was curious about the family claim that she was the cousin of someone famous but it turned out it was 4th or 5th cousin. I cant remember the name of the famous person right now but she married into British aristocracy and was a Langhorne. Also my husband's college dorm was named Dabney.

The Bowater overlap comes from the Guilford Co, NC Quaker ancestry for both me and my aunt's husband who was a Hunt.--Bevbh 14:45, 15 November 2008 (EST)

Merging [12 December 2008]

Hi Bev, This whole merging thing has been a learning experience. People need to merge their pages so they can collaborate. But, it is a complicated and arduous process. The problem is that until we let people start the merge, we didn't know what type of tools were needed. Dallan is in the process of creating more tools. Unfortunately, we have been bogged down with other things and haven't completed the tools. They will probably be available after the first of the year. Until the tools are ready, please limit merges to pages for which you are the only contributor to both pages.

Thanks, Solveig--sq 11:42, 12 December 2008 (EST)


Gideon Crull entry [8 August 2009]

I came across your entry on WeRelate. Since Gideon is a direct ancestor of mine I'm wondering that information you may have on him that you would be willing to share.

John George [13 March 2010]

Hi Bev, I am one of the Volunteer Administrators on WeRelate. I noticed that you had added Col. John George who migrated to Virginia and married Jane, but based upon research by Marty Grant, the John George of Writtle, Essex County, England, that married Jane Cole was a different John George. The John George of Writtle died and left his will in abt. 1638. I have corrected this and added documentation and notes.

Best regards,

Jim--Delijim 13:32, 13 March 2010 (EST)


Ashel Rogers Family [12 April 2010]

I see you have information on this family. Do you have anything more? I am related to this family and looking for more to fill in the blanks. Are you related to this family?--BamBam 19:26, 12 April 2010 (EDT)


William Eads George family [18 October 2010]

Hello, I am a descendant of William Eads George through his daughter Emily Delilah Eugene George. I see only three daughters listed, but family history tells me that there were four. I don't know if you are aware, but the Thomas Wills that Eliza married was grandfather through his second wife to Bob Wills of musical fame. I have information on the descendants of my branch, and I know where Mary Jane's daughter Rosie is buried. She was the first wife of my great grandfather, then he married her first cousin,Finetta Wills, who was the daughter of Emily Delilah and had my grandfather. I believe I know a descendant of Mary Jane George and Henry Lewis that has William Eads George's family bible. Supposedly, William Eads George was the first Methodist minister in Groesbeck, Texas. I was interested in your information that his mother was Cherokee Indian. Family history had informed me that "Grandma George" who I always took to be Emily Delilah George was "indian." But the Wills family had a lot of native American ancestry as well, so I have never been exactly clear on everything. You may email me at jwshafer2@gmail.com--Jwshafer2 17:42, 18 October 2010 (EDT)


Col. John George [18 October 2010]

What does this Col.John George have to do with William George in Texas? I don't understand the connection. Thanks, John--Jwshafer2 17:48, 18 October 2010 (EDT)

Families with no information or dates [19 August 2011]

Hi Bev, I just stumbled upon one of the families that you've added to WeRelate in 2008, George McIntosh and Unknown Houstoun, with no dates or information for several successive generations. Were you planning on adding information and dates to this family at some point? I think it would be helpful for other researchers that may have these families in their trees if you added whatever information you could and at least any estimated dates and places that would help others determine if they might tie-into their families...

Thanks and best regards,
Jim:)

Jacob / Karl Schuller [2 September 2011]

Good afternoon,

This is my father's mother's direct line also. Do you have additional information on this line? I have most if not all of Jacob's children and then forward to my grandmother. I have no idea as to where to get information on Bambergischen, Bayern, Germany.

I would love to compare notes.

John Robert Castleberry [29 March 2012]

Hi Bev,

    I was just looking at your page with my ancestors only you have John Watkins Castleberry.  I am a descendent of John Robert Castleberry and Margaret Ann Morris and have their pictures and copy of their gravestone on ancestry.com. My great grandfather is William Bruin Castleberry.  I'm afraid that you have connected up two different families.  I would be happy to share any information. I don't come here too often because I'm still a bit confused on how it works and I have a tree on ancestry.com anyway.  I hope we can get things straightened out.  Have a good day!

Marsha Owen, daughter of Lizzie Castleberry who is the daughter of Darius Bevin Castleberry , who is the son of William Bruen Castleberry, who is the son of John Robert Castleberry, who is most likely the son of William Castleberry, etc.--Marshao1 02:02, 29 March 2012 (EDT)


Cumming/McDowall Family [11 January 2013]

Are you able to direct me to a source of additional information about the descendants of William Henry Cumming (1820 -1893) and Elizabeth Reid McDowall? I am descended from Elizabeth's uncle and aunt, who were from Scotland.

Wife of Peter Noftzinger [16 March 2013]

Hi Bev, I've been adding some records to the Noftzinger family in Botetourt County, and stumbled across something you might be interested in. You have the wife of Peter Noftzinger as Sophronia, widow of Frederick Wise. According to a Genforum message board posting (and related responses from other researchers), Peter's wife was likely named "Frances" (also called "Preny" or listed as "Frankey" in a 1789 Tax List in Botetourt), not Sophronia. Apparently, the Richer book on this family has been noted as having no sources to back up its claim of Sophronia as being Peter's wife, and according to Glea (pg. 52), Peter Noftzinger that married the "Widow Wise" was a different Peter and the marriage took place in 1796, which rules this Peter out as her husband.

Here is a link to the message board discussion (click on the previous messages for more of the discussion):

http://genforum.genealogy.com/noffsinger/messages/126.html

I've added an advisory on Peter's Person Page, you might want to change his wife's name if you feel inclined.

Best regards,

Jim--Delijim 10:01, 16 March 2013 (EDT)


Isaac Noxon and Janet Demorset - can you delete [13 December 2013]

Hi,

I am working down from Jacobus Demorest and ran into the Isaac Noxon and Janet DemorSet family page you had created. Unfortunately I did not rename it before having created the other Isaac Noxon and Janet DemoreSt family page. I've moved the children over to the one with the correct spelling but cannot delete the family page with the incorrect spelling.--Artefacts 02:23, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Rather than deleting, it is preferable to merge the pages. You can go to the Family page and click More>Find Duplicates. Click the checkbox next to the duplicate family and press Compare. Then, continue along to merge the families. If you run into trouble with this, just let me know. --Jennifer (JBS66) 02:30, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Merge worked, thnx --Artefacts 03:22, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
