1768 Andrew is attached to two wives - Violet Farmer, and Elizabeth Paxton_or_baxter (which is not an acceptable last name).

The Andrew Simpson (1808) currently attached as married to Elizabeth Bryan Bryson is the son of 1768 Andrew.  This connection may be misplaced, and probably needs more investigation, as she is currently also the wife of someone in Ohio, they supposedly married in Ohio, yet she died in Scotland.

I suggest detaching Elizabeth Bryan from Andrew Simpson, as it is clear she is not the same Elizabeth Bryson who married Simpson in Barony.  She also needs to be restored to the previous version, and given the current last name of Taylor.

If there is no current profile for Elizabeth Bryson - not Bryan - who was born, married, and died in Scotland, one needs to be created.

Duplicates need to be merged, scroll to the bottom of the profile click propose merge and follow the prompts.

If someone has changed anything on a profile you can click changes tab and see what was done. They need to have added sources to prove the issue. It is possible that they have confused 2 different Andrews
