As I said before I am unwell just now and need a few days to go through all the information given, update my tree and then I can see what needs to be done next.

I think I may have solved this little puzzle.

I use RootsMagic to store all my information and the programme uses Treesync for Ancestry so it syncs with my online tree.

In my file I found a James Hartley from Colne who was born c1815.  I merged this man with the one I had found who was born c1817 with wives Sarah Peckover and Elizabeth Smith and found the following;

His parents were Joseph Hartley and Sarah Holmes.

Joseph's parents were James and Grace (Stansfield) Hartley who are my 5x great grandparents.

This line goes back another couple of generations to a man called Lawrence Hartley.

I'm feeling much better.  Thanks for asking.

I'm getting confused again - not difficult:

1850 marriage to Sarah Peckover (or however you wish to spell her surname) - James is aged 31 (c 1819) and his father is James Hartley, Weaver.
1866 marriage to Elizabeth Smith - James is aged 49 (c1817) and his father is James Hartley, Weaver.

"His parents were Joseph Hartley and Sarah Holmes" - your latest response.  :-\

But on both marriage entries James states that his father is "James Hartley, Weaver"

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

Why can't you understand that I made a mistake?

The man in my file has wives with the same names that we've been talking about for some time now.

Why are you right and I'm wrong??  Dates and names can change from document to document.  I thought everyone who has been researching their tree for some time understood this?

As I said I have found the answer to my question and linked this man with my family as well as many other Hartley people in my tree.

No more posts needed, thanks.

I am pleased to hear that you are feeling better now  :)

I was also going to post the same information BumbleB has as I was also confused.  It would appear that we are all wrong then.  :-\

Is it really necessary for you to be so rude to people who have spent so much of their time trying to help you - particularly as it now transpires it was you who were in the wrong??

An apology for wasting peoples time would have been more acceptable.

Given the attitude shown by you here,  I will certainly be ignoring any future posts from you

As there are so many people named James Harley in the area with similar birth dates I think we have all been trying to prove you have the right one.

I agree with all you said in your last post CaroleW. Not being well is no excuse for bad manners.
