Corlies-11 http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Corlies-11 
and Corliss-155
 http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Corliss-155  need to be merged. With the two different spellings of the last name I am at a standstill. Could you help on this matter as I do not want to do the wrong thing. I cannot access the references on Ancestry.
 
I have Contacted The other manager and asked her option on the merge. The reply I received was “I don't know for sure and I also have very few active subscriptions at present, but I notice that most sites trying to be accurate have gone with the spelling 'Corlies'.  I think this is the logical one for us to use also.  In Ireland it can be spelled either way but 'Corlies' is a bit more common.”
 

How should this merge be completed?

We can not read all of your message. I set up the merger. I do not know how to complete it. I will try to find more information on LNAB / Married Name. If we dig up more complete information / Sources it should become clearer. Maybe we should also contact an Arborist or a Connector in wikitree ? You can add Arborist & Connector tags to the question.

Many times Surnames / Last names are anglicanized :  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglicisation . I have seen Corlies / Corliss where is spelled both ways. My 2nd Gr Gm.: Caroline Atlee (Corlies) Baily. http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Corlies-110 . I also have this same difficulty w/ her married name. Baily / Bailey / Bayley / Ballie / Baillie & Duesler / Dussler . 

  "Friends" Quakers, Quaker Shakers, Mennonites desired simplicity in most everything in their lives, same for their headstones / grave markers, furniture, homes. They are very humble peoples. :)

There is no profile manager for Corliss-155. IMO= In my Opinion Corlies is the correct LNAB. You can adopt the Corliss-155 & merger them.
