I just opened a surname match that said his ancestor was from Colony, Anderson, Kansas, born 1689 which is impossible since Kansas was not settled that early. When I opened his tree, the location was actually Colony, Virginia, and I recognized the family as one that came from Virginia to SC with some of my ancestors and some of my collateral lines intermarried with. If the surnames and place names given are of interest, do not just rely on ancestry to match you. Look at the actual tree to see if there are families of interest. It is going to take a little (maybe a lot) more work than that to find unknown common ancestors.
