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 ...
- over 500 men by the name of John REDMAN
- over 200 men by the name of George REDMAN
- about 50 men by the name of Andrew REDMAN
- & about 20 men by the name of Solomon REDMAN.

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.
I search for ANY info that will more clearly identify exactly which individual I am researching to separate them from others similarly named.

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 am simply asking for more info on them.
I hope you can allow me to do that in peace.

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
> who married Jane Fisher is not the same
> Solomon Bruce who came into Greene
> County or is the son of Sarah Bruce,
> then prove that it isn't.

This is getting ridiculous ...
I am NOT trying to disproove your theory of only one individual being named Solomon BRUCE.
I am definitely NOT trying to assert that they were 2 different people.
I repeat I am just asking for ANY more info about these 2 marriages to clarify the situation in my mind.

Surely there is no harm in that ?
Surely ANY more info can be nothing but helpful.
Please allow me the freedom to make enquires of OTHER people without having to defend myself to you.
