    I have several corrections:

    Kim’s paternal grandfather had also Irish and remote Welsh.

    Ida’s maiden surname may also have been Rosenquist.

    Fred Carnes and Margaret Warner -> Frederick “Fred” Carnes and Margaretta “Margaret/Maggie” Warner
    Mary Petersen -> Marit “Mary” Pedersdatter (likely Korstad)

    Jedidah Carnes -> Jedediah Carnes

    Margaretta’s father, Heinrich “Henry” was a German immigrant from Pirmasens, Rhineland-Palatinate. Margaretta’s mother, Margaret Daly, was an Irish immigrant from Killorglin, County Kerry, of Irish, some English, and remote Welsh descent. Her mother, Mary Catherine McGillycuddy, was the 41st patrilineal great-granddaughter of Mogh Nuaghad, King of Munster.
