How could Susnana Greene has had children by two men in the same time frame?

Is the problem that a person added a child [[Sweet-1]] without sourcing on 29 June 2020?

The source https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F873-WW5  gives only Susanna  NO Surname for that child Amey

I think there is an incorrect surname on this profile. And now someone has proposed a merge which will confuse things on another profile, too. Look at Arnold-3278

If you look at the spouse and attached daughter the surname are not correct.  Susanna who m Benj Sweet is not nee Greene but Spencer.  Flip back and forth and you can see the problem.

Susannah with surname Spencer is married to Benjamin Sweet.  Her profile is not part of the merge, at least not now, of the 2 Susannah Greene married to Philip Arnold.

Greene-1 mentions additional marriages but there are no sources to verify that, nor is there any indication that it would be the same Benjamin Sweet.

I think the error is when the child Amey was attached.  The source given for her birth links to a tree a family search which calls Susanna a Spencer.  I have messaged the user who linked child to mother just recently.
