You cannot rely on Ancestry to make your matches. I just found a match this morning and it appears to be correct, but I also looked at the surnames and places suggested and found we had another ancestor in common in another line. Ancestry may have made an error linking your ancestors with a very common name, but your DNA matches and the confidence level should be related to the DNA match, not the tree. You need to look at the surnames and places and see if you see a correct match if you feel the on generated by Ancestry is wrong.
