Looking for assistance correcting a profile, if possible.

I am wondering if anyone can assist me with finding the accurate information on Bigelow-247 - John Bigelow

I am a descendent of his through his son, Bigelow-206 - David Bigelow

I tagged Lt. Johns profile in a source citing whom he married, his children, dates, etc.. Currently, on the profile it shows him as being married to 3 women:

First wife: Fuller-6270 - Hannah Bigelow
Second wife: Bigelow-299 - Sarah Bigelow
Third wife: Fuller-3430 - Hannah Bigelow

  1. First, I haven't closely compared them, but I believe the first and third wives represent the same woman, possibly a merge is needed.
  2. Second, Bigelow genealogy states his first wife's last name was not known, at least not at the time it was published, but it does state she passed away before he married his cousin, Sarah Bigelow. (That eliminates Hannah as a third wife, or possibly a re-marry, if that's what the current profile is showing.)
  3. Third, I have no idea who the first wife, Hannah, actually was and she's the mother of David Bigelow.

    That's what brought me here. I know Lt. John is a descendant of Bigelow-24|John Bigelow and it's a PPP.

    I'm curious if anyone has studied the surname Bigelow through this line and can help me? I have online access to Volume I of the Bigelow Family in America, but not Volume II. If someone does, can they see if the mysterious Hannah's last name was revealed?

Side Note: I have already emailed both profile managers of Lt. John. One hasn't been active since 2015 and the other, active more recently, but still no answer. They/he may answer soon, but I still figured since the profile currently has so little on it, it wouldn't hurt to reach out. If I've over-stepped bounds or have gone about asking this incorrectly, I apologize. Honestly, I am only interested in finding the correct mother for David, whom I'm linked to. Also, I am not pre-1700 certified and even when the correct info is found, I may need assistance adding his mother.
Thank you in advance for any help!
