  • Notes

    • (Research):

      Colin MacMillan (from Minnesota, USA ?) brought to my attention, on 17 Aug 2013, the following discrepancy with this individual:

           I have Benjamin COOPER [i4451] as having been born about 1696.
           I have no birth date for his wife, Mary LAMB [i4452].
           But I have them as having been married 25 November 1818.
           That would've made Benjamin 124 years old on his marriage day.

      So the above information is definitely incorrect.

      I do not want to assume anything, but a possibility would be, that the personal details (such as estimated birth year, parents, siblings, etc.) of the above Benjamin COOPER is correct.  But that the information about his spouse, marriage and children are NOT correct.

      Therefore, for now:

      1.   For DESCENDANCY-purposes, please disregard any information in my database on the following individuals linked to Benjamin COOPER [i4451], and their descendants:

                • Mary LAMB [i4452]

                     • Susan George COOPER [i4453], born 24 Oct 1820 in Bermuda, died Nov 1898 in Bermuda
                     • Joseph Todd COOPER [i4458], born 26 May 1822 in Bermuda
                     • Mary Sarah COOPER [i4459], born 27 June 1824 in Bermuda, died 9 July 1864 in Bermuda

      2.   For ANCESTRY-purposes, please disregard any information in my database on the parents & other ancestors of the following individuals linked to Benjamin COOPER [i4451]:

                • Susan George COOPER [i4453], born 24 Oct 1820 in Bermuda, died Nov 1898 in Bermuda
                • Joseph Todd COOPER [i4458], born 26 May 1822 in Bermuda
                • Mary Sarah COOPER [i4459], born 27 June 1824 in Bermuda, died 9 July 1864 in Bermuda

      The above Mary LAMB possibly was indeed married to a Benjamin COOPER, but not this particular Benjamin COOPER.  Likewise, these 3 childrens' father possibly was indeed a Benjamin COOPER, but not this particular Benjamin COOPER.

      I apologize for this error.  I will visit the Bermuda Archives (the source of this information) to further investigate this discrepancy, and hopefully will be able to rectify the problem.

      Thank you again, Colin.
