There are two other family pages on Francis Kendall and Mary Tidd each with one watcher and each with one (different) child listed. Wouldn't it be better to combine the three into one?--Jrich 10:37, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
Wikipedia page name consistency... [29 November 2008]
I'm glad that you're helping to merge the medieval name space. I would appreciate it, however, if you would pay attention to pages that are named consistently with their backing wikipedia page, and retain the consistent name.--Jrm03063 09:12, 29 November 2008 (EST)
When wikipedia's wrong... [30 November 2008]
I see your point. Even if you don't want to take on the wikipedia side of things, you might add to the talk pages over there to see if you can engage discussion with the people who are/were taking care of those pages. On the werelate side, I would also add a note entry on the werelate page, attached to the wikipedia source, making note of the discrepancy.
The good thing here is that in the process of working through the werelate stuff, you're finding a problem with wikipedia that you were not even looking for. This is really the sort of two-way street that I'm hoping to encourage by strongly hooking our werelate stuff to wikipedia.--Jrm03063 20:56, 29 November 2008 (EST)
Homes of Donegal [24 July 2009]
I am descended from John Homes (original spelling, later changed to Holmes) b. 1774 in "Ireland" according to US census. John's eldest son, born a year after his marriage, was Andrew, and as the family observed the naming convention, I believe this is John's father's name.
At the Holmes family DNA site, my John appears to be related to a number of Holmes/Homes men (group A1). The most well known was the Rev. William Homes who emigrated to MA in the 1600s. There is another tantalizing connection which connects John to an Alexander Holmes whose father came directly from Scotland (near Glasgow) in the mid 1800s.
Both of these connections would be consistent with the Homes you document that were in Ireland at the time of the Plantation, and were apparently Scots in origin.
Have you or any Homes related to the Plantation Homes, Raphoe or Strabane Homes family ever had DNA testing? The Holmes family project is here: http://www.geneticousins.com/holmes/public_html/Holmes%20DNA%20Project.htm . With so many Homes/Holmes moving around so much, the DNA seems to be the best way to link the families.
Thank you for your time.

Thomas Hudson - Mary Fauntleroy [2 December 2010]
I am a descendant of William Hudson/Judith Billington through their daughter Elizabeth who married John Yarbrough.
I have been searching for documentation of the marriage of Thomas Hudson to Mary Fauntleroy. The information that I have comes from a book written by a Hudson desecendant......no date or place given. The Hudson Family Assn. does not accept this as documentation. The source given on Ancestry.com is not accepted either.
If you have documentation, would you please share it with me???
Mary Fauntleroy's lineage can be traced back to Charlemagne.....the information has been documented and accepted by the Charlemagne Society. I will gladly share this information with you.

Margaret Stafford [26 March 2013]
Could I ask your help please with a page that you seem to have uploaded back in 2007? The page is Person:Margaret Stafford (10), and your source (Douglas Richardson, Plantagenet Ancestry, which I don't have access to) lists her as being the daughter of a first marriage but I have a contrary source that asserts her being the daughter of the second wife. Have you any idea which is likely to be true? Many thanks AndrewRT 19:43, 26 March 2013 (EDT)
