Luther Burbank was planted by Ancestry as my 5th cousin, 6 times removed. Unfortunately, they chose to use their favorite linkage method, PRIVATE, to connect what was documented of his pedigree to what they had documented of mine to link to a MRCA, Elizabeth Cooke (1605-1674). That plus they added five generations to what I have documented evidence to support in my line with no back up to support the next steps. SIGH! One clue about PRIVATE — Ancestry would only signify as parent of the next generation, John Walton (1685-1774) — that since they claim in my line the daughter of Elizabeth Cooke was Elizabeth Walton (1629-1674), it looks like PRIVATE might very well be male. But then again, might not.
