Three Samuel Shorey's seem to be mixed or duplicated

Samuel is a popular first name in the Shorey family. The emigrant was a Samuel. There seems to be 3 that are mixed in some way. I believe [[Shorey-286|Shorey-286]] and [[Shorey-759|Shorey-759]] are the same but have different wives. [[Shorey-454|Shorey-454]] I believe is different but has the same wife as Shorey-759. I would like to see some sources that proved parentage.

I just added sources to https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Shorey-759 using information from sourcing  his death and burial.  He appears to be a duplicate of https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Shorey-286

His wife Betsey is buried with him. So apparently wife Susannah Pray is attached incorrectly.

As far as the other Samuel Shorey's, I don't believe they are the correct one.   In the Albion Maine Cemetery at Libby Hill that I go to, I live in Waterville Maine. The Samuel Shorey that is there is number Samuel Shorey-286.   He is Married to Elizabeth Woodsum, son of Thomas Shorey-287 and the father of Luther Shorey-728.
The other Samuel Shorey-759, if you look down on the information about him.  He is married to Elizabeth Woodsum.  So why do they have in the information above with a wife of Susannah Pray and a son Nathaniel.  
In the early families of Albion Maine for Samuel Shorey ID # F381, there is his family and you do not see a son named Nathaniel.  
I hope this will help you out.  I believe that Eugene Quigley has done a great job getting his information and I believe it is correct.
Thanks and hope you have a great day. Again hope this helps out.  Samuel Shorey is my 8th generation of Shorey's.  I have 13 in all, Thanks.

Then the wife Susanna Pray should be removed from Samuel-759 and then he 759 could be merged in Samuel -286 with wife Elizabeth Woodsum, as all the dates match.

The Samuel Shorey who married Susanna Pray, is supposedly the same Samuel who married Betsey Raitt in 1793 at Kittery. "Maine Marriages, 1771-1907", database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F4DM-QMF : 14 January 2020), Shorey in entry for Samuel Shorey, https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QSQ-G9NW-H9V3?i=161  

Betsey died in 1799, and Samuel remarried to Susanna. "Maine Marriages, 1771-1907", database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F4FX-RDS : 14 January 2020), Samuel Shorey, 1799.

Still have no idea which of the many Shorey's in ME, might be Samuel's parents.  Old text give different guesses, at best.
