Pet Peeves continue!

Aargh! As I continue to work on my "new Virginia ancestors," I seem to be spending more time explaining why somebody doesn't fit rather than adding him/her to the pedigree chart. I came across one that was a combination of two men - the possible father of my ancestor and another by the same name who was born 45 years later!

I know I've made some bonehead mistakes in my research, but it pays to check vital statistics befor assigning an identity to a given individual.

Hopefully, these Virginians will get easier to deal with. I guess I need to go to Virginia Beach or Salt Lake City!
