Entirely unclear why the LNAB of this gentleman is Edson. He's the son of Pilgrim Francis Eaton.
WikiTree profile: Benjamin Eaton

It would help if the profile had decent source citations on it to support the various relations and spellings.
Also if you look at he narrative of the father of Benjamin, there's a link to an Benjamin Eaton in the text but clicking on it takes you to an unknown female Eaton who appears to be detached. That might be a good profile to merge Edson into assuming sources support the name change.
Thanks All. I'll follow up.
