Two separate ID numbers for (probably) two separate men.
Moses Ezekial Van Winkle has two separate ID numbers on our family tree: L71C-L8V as well as GMRY-LLB. Upon closer inspection, It appears that L71C-L8V died in 1846. Some of the children listed for him were born after he died. (There are even warning symbols on his page). Some of the children listed for L71C-L8V are also listed under GMRY-LLB. I've tried to peruse the sources to see if I can find out who is whom, but I'm having difficulties. A lot of the sources indicate men by this name with records from California. I'm certainly not an expert on where my ancestors came from, but I'm pretty sure most came from Pennsylvania and/or Ohio; not from California. I know we're supposed to correct mistakes on our own family tree(s), but I'm afraid I don't know where to start; not to mention how to fix so many discrepancies. Is there any way you could provide me with guidance on how to discern which is the real Moses Ezekial Van Winkle?! Thank you so very much!!
