Did this person actually exist?

Is there a point to creating this kind of profile?  There is absolutely no information on the profile to research...

Sometimes family tree data files end up with some unconnected people (the program I use has a tool to find these), and they do not get “fixed” (data filled out, connected or deleted) before the file is exported. Perhaps that is the reason for this particular profile, after all it was from a gedcom import.
Thanks to both George and Jim for their suggestions.  I have added the gedi_challenge tag; perhaps they will be able to figure it out.

Hi Victoria. The WT+ search at this link will show all 925 profiles that are still recorded as being uploaded from the same GEDCOM file in 2013.

The search at this other link shows 24 profiles from that upload which have "Pierson" in one or more name fields.

Maybe by looking at the other Piersons someone can do something with the profile you mention. For example, Samuel Pierson-628 or Samuel Pierson-634 might have been a relative of Pierson-615 (or even a duplicate), and those two do have data and sources of a kind. If nothing else comes up, merging 628 say into 615 would get rid of the problem.

Maybe the GEDI Challenge could do something with this. It could be worth editing your question and adding the tag gedi_challenge.
