I have Timmons-49 and Timmons-662 who are the same. I asked David Stephens to allow me to be a trusted member with editing rights, but have not  heard from him. This is a very confusing tree at the best of times and I need help sorting it out.......

You can propose a merge for the two. If you open the profile for Timmons-662, at the bottom you will see in about the middle of the page a section for Unmerged Match. Click Compare and both will be shown side by side. At the top of the comparison screen, highlighted in yellow is "merge them". If you will click on this, you will be presented another screen with a box in which you can describe why you believe they are the same person. Once the merge is proposed, the other profile manager will have 30 days to approve it. Since you are one of the profile managers, your approval is assumed when you submit it, and once the other PM approves it, they can be merged and their biographies and sources consolidated.
