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.
