Why have we got two different Joseph Wood's as the husband of this woman?

Margaret Unknown-424292, the wife of Joseph Wood has two marriages to two different Joseph Wood men.  This mixes all of Joseph Wood-2768 and Joseph Wood-7206's children together in their individual profiles as having multiple half-siblings. For example look at Joseph Wood-2758's son Jonas Wood-3252.    I believe these are two separate Wood families that are now jumbled up because of someone not being sure which the correct Joseph husband was for Margaret so they just figured they'd put both.  Can anyone say for sure which Joseph needs to be removed from Margaret Unknown-424292 without creating too much chaos on the tree?

Thanks for pointing that out, Bob!  I don't know the answer, but i'm sure someone will!
I have reproposed 2 merges of duplicate children, but some will need investigation.

It looks to me like a merge of 2 duplicate profiles were made.

Whomever merged the profile didn't take a look afterwards to see that more of those family members requires Merging as well.

EDIT: I noticed that someone did attempt to merge the remaining duplicate family members and they were rejected merges. This does require a bit of intervention and communication.
