I fixed it for you. Her middle name was Mott as well as her Last Name at Birth. And I've reversed the change.
I thought that I corrected this error.... but I see it is, again, in error.

Her father was Lawrence Grant.  Her name at birth was Lydia Mott Grant (I assume that the "Mott' show a relationship with the Nantucket "Motts" (Quakers) but have no proof.

Her name should be Lydia Mott Grant when she married William Thomas Price in New Brusnwick!
You have to change the Last Name at Birth. Go to Edit and there should be a little "edit" next to her Last Name At Birth of Mott. Only the profile manager or a sysop can do this.

You have her Last Name at Birth set to "Mott" instead of Grant. If you change her Last Name At Birth to Grant, and remove the Current Last Name then she will be Lydia Mott Grant.

Is that how she should be?
