I decided to launch a discussion for input. I have just reviewed these two MPd John Newton trees and do not think they are the same anymore.

John Newton

John Newton

They show up as a tree match and I think we need to just nix it. The Hannah Newton in John of Middlesex Co. died as a 1 year old. The Hannah Newton of the other John lived to adulthood and married.

Anyone else have an opinion?

I am sure you see this, but all of children of Hannah Newton (daughter of John Newton Jr, with no dates) were born after her death date. So I did a little search and found this on wikitree -

It appears John and Hannah Morse had 2 daughters named Hannah. The one with the geni profile died in infancy (1695-1696) plus Hannah (1697-1773) who married Abraham Amsden.

Thanks Private User. So they are the same John Newtons? I do know it was common to name a child for a deceased child - especially if it was for the mother. I didn't see that Hannah Newton Amsden had children born after her death on here. Looks like they are born when she lived and would have been of child-bearing age.

Hannah Amsden (Newton)

Maybe I have been looking at too many of them!

Sorry Susanne - I changed Hannah Amsden's death date (the death date listed had been her marriage date). I forgot to tell you!

Ok, I am going to request the merge. Seems like a good one. Glad we had this discussion. You always come through, Private User. Wish more people would pay attention to the discussions.

I sent the curator a message as it would not let me even request a merge. :-(

Thanks, Private User. Just sent you a message about merging the locked wives, but it is looking good!
