To all: this profile has one set of DOB, DOD, and the biography has another. Was this a bad merge?

Biography looks like the man immigrated to Jamestown. Even has a couple of references from there. Profile is for an older person.

Removed Katherine Stradling as wife, as she was the wife of Palmer-47.

Joan is also impossible on the dates.

But it looks like this Thomas was originally born 1590 and then got confused or bad-merged with an earlier Thomas.
