In regard to "process of elimination" placement of individuals in Elisha Fly, jr.'s family. -Joyce opposes it, apparently, under ANY circumstances, - judging from the foregoing castigation and labelling as "guessing". But there are situations where it is ALL you have.It's BETTER than NOTHING.And when the total number of puzzle-pieces are small enough, the risk of error diminishes to the vanishing point.
In the pioneering days (1796 - 1820) there were a LIMITED number of Fly families in the Davidson County and surrounding areas.When you find out who ALL the OTHERS are from documented sources and have a few names left and a family for whom you have indications but less-than-desired documentation, it is NOT stretching it to say, "This is what it looks like until someone can disprove it."
To want PERFECT documentation and to reject "process of elimination" reasoning out of hand is a kind of perfectionism that is NOT helpful to others who only want to know "what it looks like from the extant records" and in-family stories.
Unfortunately Joyce gets her "kicks" out of the disruption she can cause on the Forum. That's MY opinion.I can see no real intent to co-operate with serious researchers. She, it abundantly appears, would rather feud and point fingers at others, claiming THEY'RE feuding. Joe Stout is a good illustration of her tendency to castigate.I have seen nothing but legitimate requests for documentation from Joe.He is a good researcher.Now she has pounced on him for his interest in looking for substance to the Indian ancestry posting.She is "off base" and acting offensively.
