Thank you so much for your service!

Your offer of help re: Jumps is great.

Please explain why internet Tree people keep saying that Peter Jump who married Mrs. Katy Links in 1790 in Lincoln Co., KY, was 'born in Form(s)by' England. In fact this Peter Jump was 4th generation away from the Jumps of Queen Anne Co., Maryland, via Sussex Co, DE. Peter was b. in 1760s, son of John Bounds Jump, who was son of Edward Jump (who also had son Samuel who outlived John B.). You could also explain why some have confused this Mrs. Katy Links with an "Ink" family (LOL). At least some of the muddling involved conflating sundry Missouri Jumps into erroneous family groups, seemingly based on 'same name = same person'.

Since English and Scottish records are poor to nonexistent before the end of the 16th century, it would be a miracle to document Jump ancestry before that time with evidence. Much medieval genealogy written in England in the 19th century was just made up.

Best wishes for a safe return,
