Is this sufficient reason to reject a merge:

On 31 Aug 2020 Janne (Shoults) Gorman wrote on Bobbitt-142:

[[Bobbitt-505]] and Bobbitt-142 appear to represent the same person because: Revolutionary War Veteran: https://services.dar.org/public/dar_research/search_adb/?action=full&p_id=A011629

Neither profiles for Stephen Erasmus Bobbitt.  The profile manager for the lower internal entry number gives little reason for rejecting the merge even though the profile she manages is based on "First-hand information as remembered by Richard Spivey:"

Bobbitt-505 and Bobbitt-142 are not ready to be merged because: As a direct Bobbitt heir I am rejecting the merger of Bobbitt-505 and Bobbitt-142. Some of Bobbitt-505 is not correct. I am Betty Bobbitt Willis.

It's pretty clear they are intended to be the same person. However there is an issue with the mothers, and the only way ahead is to source the profiles.
