Thank you for your reply. My further research indicates that the James dob c1802/3 s/o Peter and Polly is not the same as my James dob c1795. There are now so many corrupted genealogies on Ancestry that I pity the current researchers looking for good info. Peter's will in 1817 named "five eldest" children, one of whom could still possibly be the ancestor of my James. However, none of the "youngest children" whom you mention would be in my ancestral lineage. Also, I've seen no proof of who Peter's father is even though several folks have posted various lineages. What is your Newell lineage? You may contact me "jjnewell 'at' nehp.net" -Regards, Jim N.
