William Pringle, Sr., was a son of John Pringle, and of course, William Pringle, Jr. was the son of William, Sr. I have been chasing these guys around for almost 50 years, trying to find exactly how, when and from where they came.
For about the last year, I have seen posts that have added the name “Lynde” as a middle name to William Pringle, Sr.. having looked over Pringle records for so long, I wonder where this middle name of LYNDE was found. I am not saying it is wrong; I am just stating that we need a source for this. It is not in the wills, land grants, etc.
These things that are proposed without some reliable source later become accepted as truth. Once it is proven to be untrue, it is almost impossible to correct it. Once spread on the internet, they are a lot like Gorilla glue and will not go away.
I feel sure someone added it, believing it was true, but we need proof to stand behind it before we suddenly all add it as truth. Please understand that this comes with no malice, only to add proof to this, if, indeed, it is true. I spoke with cousins, and they have tried to find a source, but like me, they are unable to find the source.
Thank you for your help. Please post anything you might have relating to this.
