A few years ago on-line trees depicting the family of Jeremiah and Elizabeth Belcher Lumsden suddenly began to include an additional son named Henry Parrott Lumsden (born 20 Aug 1803). His existence has spread like wildfire on-line as people copied him into their own trees.

Does anyone have a source for his birth? He is not mentioned in Jeremiah's will. I have not seen him listed in any published source, although I have not been able to locate the recently published book "Lumsdens of North America".

If anyone can provide proof of his existence I'd be very grateful. Thank you.
