The Above is from the small profile that shows up when in the VIEW IN TREE mode.
I take exception with some of your facts. I received this information via an Instant Discovery. It was, I believe, the first one I ever had. When I do a Smart Match Merge, I spend quite a bit of time proving the other side knows what their talking about. I failed to understand that I needed to do Primary Research on Instant Discoveries, too.
Please look at the first son, William. I don't think this is a son born 33 years before the father.
The daughter, Mary, born when he was 17, Diana, born at 21 and Thomas, born at 23, could be John's but, Since he didn't marry Jurya until 1762, I don't think he had them by her. Especially as she was 3 for Thomas' birth. I believe John had a first wife before Jurya. This is, most likely, the only place listing a person as UNKNOWN makes sense. Since Jurya out lived her husband, I see no reason not to attribute the remaining children to her.
After I did the Instant Discovery with your site, I created a GEDCOM file and joined Wikitree. Now I'm getting messages that Jurya daughter, Mary was born 3 years before her. I have several Wikitree entries I need to change. I can see no sources on Jurya's profile, so I can't tract down the original source. If you are the source of how this information entered into the Internet, what was your source? Is it in public Records? Do you have or have you seen a Family Bible with some of this information? Did you get any of this from Web Sources?
I feel we need to pass on to future generations, what we know today before the source documents are lost. If we pass on information that is not the best we can do, shame on us. There is a family association in Virginia that, a century ago, had a member write what appears to be a very well written and documented book about their family. Since then, many fact presented in this book have been proven wrong. The current members will not discuss the changes needed to made it right. They just blindly point to the book and say, "Here's our authority. You're wrong!!!!" Lets get this right before someone, a century in the future, uses our data as gospel to write a book.
I know I've created quite a bit of research for you to do. I hope you can do it and get back to me. Thank you, in advance, for your time.
