I have been trying to clean up some of the profiles under my care. I have hit a bit of a snag on this profile, I have Mary Merkley (Merkley-27) marrying John Allen (Allen-6230). I can't seen to validate this marriage. I find her married to Henry Hare on Ancestry. http://records.ancestry.com/mary_merkley_records.ashx?pid=87867027 So I'm not sure how I should proceed with this profile. I really don't want to create a bigger mess. Suggestion Please.
WikiTree profile: Mary Allen

When I clicked on one of the sources listed I only get an offer to send Ancestry.com 29.99 a month aftr a free trial.  Not much of a source I reckon 1 :D

Sari:

Do you have any primary sources either way? Some ancestry trees are well done with good sources, some are careless click o philes (Meaning they just put in whatever they find on others work and don't really verify sources).

My suggestion would be to check any primary sources you have first. If you can verify marriage to your satisfaction, very good. If not you can list what you have now in the bio section and not add spouse in profile until you can document which one.,

No primary sources for either husband. I adopted this profile and a few other Merckel profiles, they are a bit of a mess. Think I will add a note about Henry Hare and his children hopefully somebody out there has some valid sources.
I added some sources to the profile for review. Let me know if any of those are helpful
