I have just discovered there has been careless merging of the descendants

Many of the John's have been combined and contain a lot or erroneous information

I am not sure how this is goign to work out since many of the early profiles on MP'd, locked and curated and I my self let alone anyone else on GENI can do clean-up without having to constantly beg for help

I am not sure how this will work out or if anyone will be willing to help - I will try to link the profiles if I can - those that are not a complete jumbled mess.

I have started with my manuscript file that is now in RootsMagic7 and starting from the top - I will start by taking one family at a time - and put into here -

I am cleaning my file down to one set of facts and any data such as "deceased" etc. that is not needed and <> will be used where data or names or parts of names are questioned

Some have claimed that she is the daughter of Joseph Morley

Anne Arundel Co., MD;11 m. Ruth -?-. Claims that she was a daughter of Joseph MORLEY are in error. This appeared in print with Harry Wright Newman's 1st Edition (1933) of "Anne Arundel Gentry," based on MORLEY's 1672 will in which he made Robert PROCTOR and John GATHER his executors and legatees.21 Newman corrected this in his second edition (1970), as court records show Joseph MORLEY died with no heirs.10

Excerpt from Gaither Family Genealogy of VA to MD to NC" by F Z Saunders: "Claims that Ruth is a daughter of Joseph MORLEY is in error. This appeared in print with Harry Wright Newman's 1st Edition (dated 1933) of "Anne Arundel Gentry, based on Morley's 1672 will in which he made Robert Proctor and John Gaither his executors and legatees.

As court records show Joseph Morley died with no heirs, Harry Wright Newman corrected his error in his second edition published in 1970.

There are also claims that Ruth's surname was BEARD, daughter of Richard BEARD. The evidence would indicate that she wasn't. Richard Beard wrote his will in Anne Arundel County on 24 July 1675,

In addition to the fact that John Gaither and wife Ruth were not married as yet probably and had no sons the 1st child b. 1677 by the list below and that no part of "Timber Neck" was ever possessed by the Gaither family.
