The other day someone added parents to John O Skinner, no biggy it's an open profile, I also wasn't informed of this. I took them off his profile. But then I went and put them back until I could research and see if they are his parents, cause it isn't who I had for his parents I just hadn't added them. They needed researched. I decided to take some time tonight and look into it and  guess what I found?

After quick review, I am not convinced that all of these are duplicates. Sources are needed to help sort them out.

For example, what evidence do you have for the Elizabeth Cutter born 1740 who married a John Skinner? The only sourced profile for an Elizabeth Cutter who married John Skinner is https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Cutter-147 -- and she was born in 1711 and married in 1736. Thus, she does not look like a duplicate for a girl born in 1740.

Work is also needed on John Skinner. The profile says he died in Kentucky but I filled out the details for the attached source and it says he died in Pennsylvania.
