Could some kind, patient soul fix these Cable, Roth, Rhoades, and Rheinhardts?

+7 votes

There are a whole bunch of profiles that are so wonked up I don't even know where to start with fixing them. Let's start with this:

Elizabeth Ulrich apparently had a son with Heinrich Roth named Heinrich Roth/Rhoads... and then... married said son.

Then there's the Catherine Cable who married Heinrich Roth, but Catherine is listed here on WikiTree as having a sister named Catarina Cable who is married to a Henry Hendreek Rhodts' Rhoades!

These are supposed to be my ancestors somehow but I don't know how to fix this mess at all.

I'm asking for some help here. I'm nervous to touch any of these profiles. It's sort of like going into your basement with intent to get something out, seeing the giant mess, realizing it needs to be cleaned direly so you can even find anything, and then turning around and going right back upstairs not to touch it again.

Too many Henrich Roth's to keep straight. A mess is right.
It seems that Elizabeth married Heinrich Roth born 1686 first and then married his son Heinrich Roth Roads SR. born 1712. Heinrich Roads SR. was not Elizabeth's son. He was the son of Heinrich Roth and Catherine Cable.
...the marriage to the son was disconnected.  The biography says she died in 1719 and the son was only born in 1712 making that practically impossible.  The biographies still need to be organized after an apparent merge as there are other obvious errors as well.
Thanks for doing that much. Like I said, I stared at that mess and drew a blank on where even to start. So I really, really appreciate it.
Good luck with it!
