Caution: Kincheloe, McPherson Book

For those of you who are relying on Lewin McPherson's 1951 book "Kincheloe, McPherson and Related Families", PLEASE use caution.

I have spent 3 years researching the Eli Legg/Jane Prince family, (who appear beginning on p. 68) Jane Prince was the daughter of Hubbard Prince and Elizabeth KINCHELOE. I have found numerous errors in the McPherson book.

I mean no disrespect to Mr. McPherson, as his work is a remarkable achievement considering the time period in which he wrote it; however, it should be used as a guide to research further, and not as a "Bible".
