Are these the two profiles you are referring to:

http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Dabney-32

http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Dabney-49

There is a proposed merge pending (shown at the bottom of the page.
I am listed as a profile manager for Susannah Dabney Strother, but don't know why.   the information listed for her is not what I understand to be correct.  I suspect that the problem arises from a number of women named Susannah Dabney.  The Susannah Dabney Strother that I have looked at is listed by some as the daughter of John Dabney who is a son of Cornelius Dabney.  I have her listed in a Ancestry.com tree as the daughter of Cornelius Dabney and Susannah Swann.  I get this information from Wikitree and one other site.  Unfortunately, I can find no documentation of who the father is.

Some one could have miss typed or may have made a honest mistake. Hopefully it can be corrected.

It is possible that brothers named their daughter the same name, I have two brothers that have a daughter named Sarah. Without profiles to look at and check we can do little more than guess at the answer, sorry.
