Yes, I think it does need to be reviewed.  Mary Pemberton from the link shows born in 1786 if I remember; where I think George Smith is born around the 1780's.  I don't think George can have this woman as his mother until we get the dates worked out.

I have the same issue with George's wife Ally Martin.  They have a son; William Thomas Smith, who was born in 1809; yet George and Ally didn't marry until 1812.

Another reason to join this group, is to help get the data correct.  I have only been using online sites up to this point to find the paper trails; and this part going back to this time period is a bit hard to find.

Hello, I have a papertrail to William T Smith (Reverend) that was born 1809; died about 1869.  I show that he married Mary Wheeler; for which this line down is where I am a few generations.

From what I have gathered, William's parents were George Smith and Ally Martin.  However, this is where I am getting stuck.

If William was born in 1809, was his father, or mother; really these two people George and Ally?  I show a marriage for George and Ally in 1812; which is 3 years after my particular William was born.

One of the reasons I thought to join this group was that I am trying to learn moe about this situation and to see if others have run into this; and to find relations I may not be aware.

This is your statement:
"For Reverend Guy Smith , we would like at least one tester from each son, if found, to prove the line.One promising direct line seems to the the Guy Smith b 1728 d 1787 Granville Co NC who married Ann Hopkins and descendants in Wilkes Co GA, Carroll Co GA and Jasper Co GA."
The Guy Smith who married Ann Hopkins is the son of Col John Smith and grandson of Rev Guy Smith.  The Guy Smith who has descendants in Wilkes Co GA, Carroll Co GA and Jasper Co GA is I71472.  If you want documentation, please contact me.  rms71@suddenlink.net

Was just doing some follow up on FTDNA; and happened to notice the kind folks here; have already put me into the DNA portion. :-)  That was interesting, posted, yet I was already a part of it.  Funny how life works.

My 4th gen grandfather is the same Absalom Smith mentioned by commenter By Gary1876 (whom I believe is now deceased. As a side note, there are several members' family trees on Ancestry.com that list Susannah/Susan's maiden name is Kimball. THIS IS INCORRECT.  Susannah Kimball was the wife of Absalom Wamsley Smith - not our grandfather. Any questions, please contact me.

I agree. I think that was a vestige of another tree where the parents could not be proven to have a  link and those two were left hanging. The locaitons also looked strange but it wasn't actually part of anyone's branch so I removed it. IF in the future someone wants to submit a tree with a Peter Smith of Middlesex Co VA, will look again. Thank you for the heads up.

Best way to call out potentail errors in the database if you want admins to look  is to go the page with John and then, towards the top of the page SUGGEST a change. That will send an email message into the queue that includes the right ID for that John and can be looked at.
