My great great grandfather's cousin has been entered in place of my great great grandfather. How do I change this? My gggrandfather was Dennis McLendon and he was granted a land patent (source "Family Maps of Shelby County, Alabama" in 1858 and I still own a portion of this land. This source does show "Dennis" rather than "Lewis", which is correct. I have the original deeds for the land where my grandfather bought his siblings' inheritance and the documents read "in the estate of Dennis McLendon, deceased". Anecdotally, my grandmother often took me to her parents' graves and would tell me her dad, James Dennis, was named after her grandfather. In addition, my dad showed me the old homesites of my great grandparents, as well as Uncle Louis and Aunt Ann and this is all on the land granted under the patent to Dennis, whereas Lewis lived in a totally different part of Shelby County.
Can you help? Thanks!
@dawnCole37 We understand that you desire to change the father from Louis McLendon to Dennis McLendon. However, we will need more information to address this problem with your ancestors. Would you please provide the full names, birth dates and places, and their ID#s from Family Tree. Also the ID# for their spouses would be helpful.
Looking forward to assisting you.
