He was the father of a direct ancestor of mine, William Webber, born in 1711.

How is the date of death of 1703 possible. That is listed as the date of death for his wife, Sarah Hobbs Webber and she also has a date of death of 1703. That same date of 1703 is also listed as the date of their marriage.

This might have been a case where an original, offline version had the death as AFTER their marriage date, but was badly converted by the time it made wikitree.

I'll go fix it to be after the date of the last child's birth until we can find something better.
Diane,

Look at the profile now. Please consider it as a model to how you could contribute here if you had an account. Wikitree profiles are 100% user-contributed. Early on in wikitree's existence, it allowed the creation of MANY profiles (through un-reviewed GEDCOM uploads) with various quality of sourcing. As a result, we have a LOT of cleanup to do. With a few exceptions, all here are volunteers, myself included. Please consider joining us. Thanks.

I saw that death recorded in the Wenham VR, but couldn't see how we could confirm it was the death of THIS Edward.
