Can we clean up the Thomas Rathbun (1736-c 1800) of RI Family?

The offspring of Thomas Rathbun, b 1736 Rhode Island, are currently a muddle. There are eight profiles for Unknown Rathbun only one of which has an differentiating information. The others are now proposed to be merged away unless a name is identified for them.

There is currently no vital record citation for any of the children. One listed as a child gives a 1737 birth date to a father born 1736. There are children attached who are not listed on the profile--none of the child profiles have primary source documentation.

Much of what is here and is found in attached unmanaged children profiles appears to come from rathbun-family.com website which frequently lacks primary source documentation for its information.

Do we have a descendant of this family who would like to take on sorting this out? Simply finding primary source docs for the children would go a long way to improving this profile and those of children that should be here.

Half of the undocumented Unknown Rathbun children profiles now merged. Merges set up for the other unknown/undocumented children.
