There are two profiles for John Brockett (1686-1709) [closed]

+6 votes
There are two profiles for John Brockett (1686-1709), Brockett-82 and Brockett-203. Jacobus' "Families of Ancient New Haven", Vol II, page 323 lists two sons named John for John Brockett-77 and his wife Elizabeth Doolittle-215. Instead of merging these two profiles, should we change the dates on Brockett-203, to be the John who was born October 23, 1676 and died November 29, 1676?

The profile manager for Brockett-203 just changed the dates on that profile, so I've now marked the two as a rejected match. Thanks!

Just visited the page for John Brockett V (1686-1709) Brockett-82 and do not see a pending merge at bottom of page. Also do not see a merge listed at bottom of page for John Brockett (1686 - 1709) Brockett-203.

I do see a Unmerged Matches for the two profiles.
John Brockett (Brockett-82) and John Brockett (Brockett-203) are currently set as Unmerged Matches to indicate that the two profiles are not ready to be merged yet.

I haven't proposed a merge. I'm recommending that we keep both profiles, but change one of them to be the other son John.
Kay, I'd say that if you don't get any response from any of the profile managers / trusted list folks in a week, to go ahead and implement your proposal.
Thanks Jillaine! It's been changed.
