Richard Adam's wives are not correct - What is the best way to fix this?

Richard Adams married Mary Cady in 1709 and they had a large family. Mary would outlive him. They didn't marry until Richard was 29, so he could have been married before, but Mary Cleveland doesn't fit. She would have been fifteen when he married Mary Cady. She has somehow ended up with Mary Cady's death date as well. Adams and Cady had two children named Lucy (1728-1729 and 1731-1809) so Mary Cleveland's Lucy (d.1736) doesn't fit either. My inclination would be to simply detach Mary Cleveland and her daughter from this profile, as she likely belongs to a different Richard Adams. I am new on Wikitree. Is this the right approach? Or does anyone have a better idea?

I agree with you Dave.  With so much information out there, its better to be logical and common sense.  We need to make corrections so as the mistakes are not continued to other trees.  Again thank you.
