     Alexander Love, Military Date: 7 Feb 1778, Rhode Island
 ✿ U.S. Civil War Soldiers, 1861-1865
     Alexander Love, Confederate, North Carolina
So Alexander was born to 9 year old parents. He then either starts his own family at birth or adopts a child later who is the same age as him. He and his wife continue to have children as children themselves. Five years after his death he fights in the Revolutionary War. Then he hangs around for 90 more years to fight in the Civil War.
 Father  Sir John LeLou ( -1308)
 Mother Amice Mauduit

 Child    Nigeli Luiff (1420-1492)
And John's parents were 100 and 70 years old when he was born.
It's never just one mistake. Clickohphiles don't pay attention to what they're doing. Ever.

  1. Hey! I think I read a book like that. Had to do with a Vampire that served in the Civil War. :) They got to get those stories from somewhere right?

  2. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who recognizes the errors people make when they are "reserching" their pedigrees. And I really get irritated when sites like Geni list Alexander as my "DNA match" based only on the information posted by someone who obviously didn't pay attenttion that he was only 9 when his first child was born. I've spent a lot of money on DNA testing because I didn't want to post incorrect information just to say someone is a relative. Pay attention people and validate what you are posting.

  3. I take the information with a grain of salt. However sometimes it does give a start on a path to find the right information. While I have debunked a fair amount of information found on line every so often a gold is found in the stream.
