I believe three separate families have been combined into one. What happens to their temple work?
I am on a personal mission to check familysearch familytree for all my grandmother’s paper research (sources) and paper family group sheets with ordinances completed to make sure both are preserved before I throw them away. Her name is Ellen Rose Binns Folsom. She went by Rose; she was born in England. In doing so I have come to what I believe to be a couple with children who in reality are at least three couples with their children. I could be mistaken. I have searched for sources for every one of the 23 children’s births. I found them for all but two. Since the children were christened in different parishes and some christened the same years in different parishes and some christened in non-conformist churches, I have come to the conclusion that there are at least three families combined into one.
I am not really sure how to proceed from here. This is the most complicated situation I have come across while reviewing all of my grandmother’s paper genealogy. I have reviewed the history of both George KCQL-KB6 and Mary LCQ6-568. George Brooke does not seem to be the same person as the father on my grandmother’s family group sheets, but Mary Bentley could be the same Mrs. Mary Brooke. Their temple ordinances do not match those on my grandmother’s family group sheet. The children named William KCJ5-564, John KZJ6-PPZ born in 1807, Lydia L62K-QND, Sarah Ann K8JY-NVH, and Joseph KZX2-MXL born in 1831 have matching temple ordinances to those on my grandmother’s family group sheets. At this point I am most concerned about the family groups and which children should be sealed to which parents. I realize that George and Mary are extremely common given names. I don’t know what happened to the Mary Brooke who was originally sealed to George Brooke in March 1957 in the SLC temple. I don’t know if her maiden name was Bentley or not.
I have scanned my grandmother’s three family group sheets that pertain to one of the families. FYI, I have an 8.5"x11" scanner. That is why there are so many parts to the family group sheets.
I have scanned my notes and screen shots of the one large family in familytree. I don’t know how many files can be attached or the total file size that can be attached to this email. Please let me know you have received my email and all eleven attachments. I have tried again to attach the family group sheets and FamilyTree screenshots, so you can open them. I am using only jpg files.
