Should Thomas Griggs' specific birth date and location be removed from his profile? [closed]

Thomas Griggs' biography indicates that there is no evidence for his origins, and Anderson's Great Migration entry says his origins are not known. His Find A Grave memorial information was recently added to his sources, and appears to be the only evidence of a specific birth date and birth location. I believe that his birth information should be changed back to 1600 in England. Are there any objections?

The Disputed Origins section on the profile explains where the purported origins come from. The birth info is certainly not proven, and since the PGM Project uses Anderson's Great Migration series as our basis, it should be removed.

Seems to me that it should be as you suggest, c 1600 in England.
