Is there an example of a good disambiguation page

I have 5 different women in my database all with the same name, all lived in New Jersey in the mid to late 1700s.  Some are already posted to WikiTree but I believe some are mixed up as to which woman married which man.  Some of the women married two and three times.  Even the sources are sometimes given for the other woman with the same name.  I'd would like to create a disambiguation space page to help differentiate these women, their parents and their husbands.  But I'm a bit unsure just how to present this info all on one page.  Or is this even a good idea?  Any recommendations?  Are there any examples of good disambiguation pages?

Here is one that meets the needs: Thomas Lincoln (4 of them). See Lincoln-429

Similar to Vic's, but less detailed - Robert Mantooth

A free space page might help too.

Here are two disambiguation freespace pages. I won’t claim they’re good yet, but maybe you’ll get some ideas:

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Joseph_Allens_of_Barrington_and_Rehoboth
