Why does the top section of the profile state that the date and location of Lidia's marriage to Stephen Albertse Terhune is unknown, even though the text of the Biography section gives that information, as well as the sources for that information?  What can be done to fix this?

The reason that the marriage information is not in the profile data section is that no one has entered it yet.

That is an Open profile. Any member with pre-1700 certification can edit it. Go to the profile, click on the Edit tab. Over on the right, under Spouses, find the name of the spouse and click the hyperlink that says [edit marriage to ....].

And thank you in advance for improving the profile.

I also noticed that the hyperlink for Source #8 (Documents Relating to the Colonial History of the State of New Jersey) didn't go anywhere.  I added a span id tag at the bottom so the link to the project source information could be followed.  But I'm not sure it's the best syntax because it seems easier for a person to just click the link and have it go directly to the source, rather than have the page move down and then someone would have to realize that they are supposed to click the link that names the document.  Is there a better way to add active links to the project sources?

Thanks for fixing that. yes

It looks like the source citation got lost some time in the past, probably in the confusion of merging duplicate profiles and cleaning up after the merges.

I dislike span tags -- one reason being that they increase the risk of source citations getting disconnected the way this one did. Therefore, I eliminated the span tag arrangement and moved the source details into the footnote.
