Could Some Experienced Individual Edit these profiles?

This Sarah (Nettleton) Lum appears to have been merged with Ann Nettleton, wife of Samuel Andrew Woodruff.  The dates are wrong.  I have documented Sarah's Birth. She was born about the same time as some of his children! Could someone who knows what they are doing leave Ann Nettleton as the wife of Samuel Andrew Woodruff?

Reference the following information. []

Barbour CollectionSouthbury Vital Records 1787-1830
Mrs. Sarah Lum
[Mrs. Sarah Lumm, Lume] 
Marriage Date: 13 Sep 1797
Marriage Place: Derby, Connecticut, USA
Spouse: Richard Holbrook



WikiTree profile: Sarah Lum

I did a minor edit on the profile to get the 'references' tag under the Sources header since it was in the middle to what you had posted.  

I wonder if the person married to Richard Holbrook is someone else.  The gravestone states that Sarah is the widow of John Lum and matches the dates on the profile.

The information that was added in 2016 has the christening date and marriage to Samuel Woodruff.  There is an Ann Nettleton-219 profile, which has the same information, so I agree that the Ann Nettleton information should be removed form Sarah Nettleton-213 profile since it is already on Ann's profile and then just unlink Samuel Woodruff from this profile.

There is also a John Lum-119 profile, that is linked as a sibling, but is suspicious because it is in the middle of the Nettleton siblings.

I have updated the profile, removing all the information about Ann which is on the 'correct' Ann profile.  PM must have made a mistake because it is the same person that posted in both profiles.  I have unlinked Samuel as a spouse of Sarah and also changed the mother on the child Ann to Ann Nettleton, instead of Sarah. Luckily there was not a 2nd Ann profile under Samuel's profile.
The child John Lum is correct.  He is from his mother's 1st marriage to John Lum.  The earlier Nettleton children are from Josiah Nettleton's 1st marriage, so they are all Half siblings to Sarah.
