Randolph Scott — very PRIVATE


Well, there were a couple of problems with the report on 9th cousin, twice removed, Randolph Scott.  First, in my pedigree chart, there was a leap of three generations of PRIVATE entries between the proposed grandfather of my known 4 times great grandmother, Esther Clark, and the MRCA, Elizabeth Ward (1613-1700).   This does not build confidence in the structure being presented.  Then, in “Cousin Randolph’s” line, they have our MRCA giving birth to her daughter, Deborah Ward, at age 10.  I really do not think anyone gave this one the smell test.
