There are several profiles which have been erroneously connect to the tree. For example one woman (born in 1385) is presented as the daughter of a man born in 1825). In June I contacted the managers of these profiles but have gotten no response or action. I'm wondering what can be done. I am forbidden from breaking the linkage and cannot find any other means of dealing with this now other than by contacting you.

On 6/30/2013 I’ve contacted the curator for Lewis Motes (http://www.geni.com/threads/6000000021311206913), asking that the connection be broken. Go to the tree for Margaret Moythe to see the erroneous link (http://www.geni.com/family-tree/index/6000000004957703669).

Then on 6/27/2013 I had done the same with Donald Simmons, his wife and daughter (http://www.geni.com/threads/6000000021264476359). Go to the tree for Richard Scammon to see anachronism (http://www.geni.com/family-tree/index/6000000007060150439).

Thank you so much for your help. I love Geni.com.

I have taken care of correcting the tree.

The two splits are now done.

Humphrey Scammon, Sr.

Got into the tree and Richard and son Humphrey look ok. Is that what you fixed Kevin?

Nothing else before those two are there. Have they been removed because of corrections being made?

Thank you so much for taking care of this, Kevin. That was quick. And Judith, thanks for trying, but Kevin beat you by 11 minutes. (You guys are quick and great.)

There is still a mix up with this. I found info that states he was married to Elizabeth Jordan in 1697 and Elizabeth , Mary and Hannah were her children with Humphrey Scammon. Then she died and he married Eliizabeth Harvey in 1714 and they had 8 children ,starting with another Mary born 1715.
