Propose removing spouse from Mary (Mitchell) [closed]

+8 votes

I wonder if this Mary is a combination of two different Mary's? m William Mitchell in 1648 in Newbury. He died in 1654. She second married Robert Savory/Savery in 1656 in Newbury. With Robert she had 5 children, one of which is Sarah Savory, b in 1657. 

According to Experience Mitchell's profile (shown as [[Mitchell-146 | Mary Mitchell]]'s father), "Mary, b Plymouth abt 1632; m1 Plymouth 24 Dec 1652 James Shaw, son of John; m2 John Jenny". This information was taken from Robert Charles Anderson's featured name information on Experience Mitchell, and seems to suggest that there was no Robert Savory in her life.

Mary Mitchell-146 appears to have been having children with both Robert and James at the same time as her profile appears now. Not very likely, considering it is over 70 miles between Newbury and Plymouth.

In my opinion Robert Savery (who came into her profile as a spouse in a merge in March 2014) should be deleted as Mitchell-146's spouse.

Mitchell-146 is PPP because of being a Mayflower family member.

Are there any objections to removing Robert Savery as her spouse?

It looks like there are 2 women named Mary (Sawyer-147 and Mitchell-146) both of whom have Robert Savory (Savory-146) as their husband.  Given what you have found out, it seems logical to remove Savory-146 from Mitchell-146 as he remains the husband of Sawyer-147 who was his spouse (dates and places match).

I see that Mitchell-146 is PPP but it also needs work - noted as "excessively-long" and that usually means it has been merged but not "cleaned up" several times.  I'd say it is overdue for Spring Cleaning!  Go to it....
