Person:Seth Smith (16) [28 August 2008]

You have entered Seth Smith (16) and I see no birth, death, marriage or parents specified. Just a name. I can't even tell what century he belongs to. I am working with a Seth Smith and there is no way I can tell if this is possibly the same Seth Smith or not. What connection causes this Seth Smith to be in your data? If there aren't any hooks that I can use to match to him, I won't be able to provide any additional information I may or may not have and this entry is destined to be a dangling, useless entry until you can provide some data to identify which of the thousands of Seth Smiths that have existed throughout time this entry represents. --Jrich 10:10, 28 August 2008 (EDT)

You still around? [30 November 2008]

I've been merging and cleaning up a lot of Wheeler pages, including pages you're marked to watch. While I have some Wheelers in my database, I'm not nearly as informed about the surname as others. (Although I've recently learned more than I ever thought I'd want to know...). I'd appreciate it if you'd look over what I've done, including the initial drafting of Wheeler_in_Massachusetts and Wheeler_in_Connecticut pages. I'm certain I've made some errors but I've been so in the weeds of the Wheelers, that I'm not sure I can see properly anymore. I'd appreciate your help and guidance. Thanks. jillaine 18:13, 30 November 2008 (EST)

Possible Merge? [19 April 2009]

Hello Selena, I noticed that we have two families that probably need to be merged, but we have some differences that need to be resolved first.

You have two children that were born well after Isabella Gass/Goss died. Doubt that either of these belong to this couple.

You also have this Archilbald Wood as a son of Archibald and Isabella:

I show this Archibald Woods as a son of Col William Woods and Susannah Wallace.

From "Woods McAfee Memorial", pg. 59:

(VI) Archibald Woods, was the son of William Woods (24) and Susannah Wallace, and is said to have been born in Albemarle County, Virginia, January 29, 1749. This member of the family was one of its oldest representatives, and was for many years prominent in the early period of the history of Madison County, Kentucky.

At bottom of page:

By his wife, Morning Shelton, Captain Archibald had a family of ten children. His wife died September 7, 1817. By his second marriage, he seems to have had no issue.

You can download a copy of this book at the following URL:

I'd consider the Woods McAfee Memorial Book pretty much the "bible" on early Woods family research, so if you have any primary evidence to contradict it, please let me know.

Thanks and best regards,
