Six men named William Andrews came to New England in the PGM, per Anderson's Directory.  They have often been confused, even by eminent genealogists and in well-maintained WT profiles, and of course in 19th century sources.  Two of them might be the same man--or not.  Some of this is discussed in individual profiles, but can we better disentangle them using the free-space profile I've begun, but which needs a good deal more work?

Thanks for taking a stab at this.
Thanks Halsey, good start.  Do you think it might be better to open up the privacy level so other folks can edit it?
Yes, Brad.
