I have xhausted my search tools and all resources trying to locate my 4GGrandfather and who he married that was my 3GGrandfayhers mother. Ive run into a problem with the decendents naming kids same name and there is alot of misinformation in Ancestry.com. I know by factual documents Patrick Ephraim Finton (date of birt approx 1818) sometimes spelled Fenton came from Ireland and went to England. His son George Benjamin Lisco Finton was born in England but I couldnt find his mothers name. George died in 1874 of measles along with his infant daughter Mary Finton in Arkansas. George was married to his step sister Minerva Cavender Finton. Her mother married Patrick Finton when herfirst husband was killed in the civil war. I cant determine where Patrick was born, who is first wife was, who his parents were and where he is buried. Im started to wonder if he changed his name when leaving Ireland. He also put he was from South Carolina but this is incorrect and later corrected documents stating he was born in Ireland. If anyone can help me or direct me to how I can determinethis information I would appreciate it. Thank you Liisa Finton Creasey, as always Finton I am
