Mistakes on Read-Only Pages for Joseph Hewes
Over the last 3 years I've complained twice about the read-only page for Joseph Hewes LCYM-ZXW. Hewes was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. The page on Hewes is in a sorry state. Each time I pointed out a mistake the revision that resulted made it even worse.
On the main page two different dates of birth displayed. Under the Vitals section you will see that the citation for his 23 Jun 1730 birth date refers to find-a-grave.com which provides a July 9, 1730 date of birth. There are five other mistakes here. Mercer county was created in 1838 so he wasn't born in that county. There are no "Quacker" records. Hewes does not have a headstone -- p.s. its one word. The Colonialhall.com reprints the Charles Goodrich bio which is full of errors. It should never be used as a source.
As I count them there are 12 errors in the FamilySearch pages on Hewes. It's odd that only two sources are cited on the page and both are secondary sources when much better primary sources are easily available. For example, see the wikipedia article on Hewes and you'll find an abundance of sources including lots of primary sources. (Warning: I wrote the article.)
I've detailed the mistakes with screen shots of the Hewes pages on FS with explanations in a webpage I've assembled. https://testfamilygenealogy.com/History/Hewes/0-FamilySearchReadOnlyJosephHewes/JosephHewes.html
