You're right, and I apologize for the noise.

I was in here trying to find evidence for "their daughter" Hannah, and overlooked the citations because they looked like they come from GEDCOMs. Death date on Hendee-89 appears to be incorrect. I'll propose that his managers come up with a citation for it that jibes with what is in the Connecticut records (happily not burned), b/c nobody with his name is on record dying anywhere near that time (Barbour collection). Hopefully we can change his death date to prevent this in future.

Hendee-89 and Handy-60 do not represent the same person because: Richard Hendee and Richard Handy are two different men. They both married a Hannah. BUT they are different. Please look carefully at the profiles and dates with sources.

The children may be assigned to the wrong parents in error and should be moved if so.

Hendee-89 and Handy-60 appear to represent the same person because: These appear to be one person whose facts aren't perfectly aligned. The profiles share a death date and have dupes among the children (who will also need to be merged).

Hannah Elderkin was not the wife of Richard Handy. She was the wife of Richard Hendee. The dates and locations just don't add up. This error has been floating around for as long as I have been researching. Eighteen years!!
