Re: Solomon Bruce and Barney Redman
In Response To: Re: Solomon Bruce and Barney Redman ()
Marlene, my objective is not to argue with you about this.
I am simply asking questions that may hopefully lead to ANY more info.
Surely there is nothing wrong with that ?
We are all a product of our experiences. As administrator of the REDMOND dna study, I am all too familiar with different people having the exact same given name & surname. In my database I have ...
Many of these individuals are unrelated, having sprung from entirely different immigrant ancestors to America.
Many of these individuals ARE related being cousins or uncles/nephew or fathers/sons with the exact same names.
Thus I have learned to be extremely detailed in discerning them apart.
On the internet I see far too many genealogy "researchers" who automatically assume that individuals with the same same name are one & the same person. These errors in assumptions do nothing but make it difficult for others to discern what information is correct to accept. For instance, whenever I visit ancestry.com's `One World Tree' site I see numerous errors as a result of people just assuming that ancestors with the same name have got to be the same individual.
I don't know whether there are 1 or 2 people by the name of Solomon BRUCE.
I do not understand why you have such resistance about me JUST simply asking for ANY kind of info (however tentative or solid) that would support your assumption.
I came upon the 2 marriages for Solomon BRUCE ... & not knowing about your assumption that they were the same person, I put them as separate individuals into my database. I too thought they could be the same individual ... but my experience has taught me to be cautious. I am still looking for any info to link these marriages to the same man.
We don't have to look far for people with the same name to be 2 distinct individuals ... each Solomon BRUCE marriage produced a son by the name of Andrew BRUCE !! That info alone would TEND (not proove) to indicate they were separate individuals.
The possibility exists that 2 cousins both named Solomon BRUCE, moved from VA,Hardy-Co to PA,Greene-Co. I seek ANY info that clarifies the situation more clearly.
> If you disagree that the Solomon Bruce
This is getting ridiculous ...
Surely there is no harm in that ?
