In the wiki tree for Prather-554 and Prather-552 both Robert Prathers have the same wife and children - and are born 30 years or so apart.

Can someone help me sort this out?

Thanks,

did you already fix the problem, or am I missing something?  Prather-554 shows as the son of Prather-552 and Alice & brother to their other children.  I sometimes get tangled up on where the information is and misread parent as spouse/siblings as children. Am I doing that here and missing the problem?
Haven't fixed the issue: as there are still two different folks that have similar wife and kids names : and it doesn't make good sense to me -

I have chosen to link my tree to the one Robert Prather / Alice Davis that makes the most sense: but I haven't sorted out why there is a Robert James Prather and a Robert Moore Prather that married an Alice L. Davis and had the same named kids.

There may be a potential for a merge, but I don't have enough documentation to validate that.  Looking for any insight or documentation.
from what I'm seeing, it looks as if Prather-554 and and Prather-563 may be duplicates (Robert J and Robert M - both shown as sons of Robert Prather-552 & Alice Davis; I don't see that Alice Davis-13040 is wife to anyone except Prather-552).  In other words, I'm still not seeing the problem with Prather-554 and -552 (but I've been on the computer too long today, so it may be just me).

Sorry I wasn't helpful & good luck on sorting it out.

Cheers, Liz
