First, cleaned up profile from several merges so that one could read it easier. Took out duplicate source info and ancestry references that were duplicated as far as I could tell.  Second, sources were given, maybe not the best but a starting point. Other profile managers may want to take another look and continue their research as needed.

Post note: In my opinion, I believe we need to look at profiles not having any type of sources whatsoever... before being critical of one having a couple of sources like FAG that can at least get one in a direction to find more information. 

Thanks Ellen S. for Best Answer!!!

The unsourced template doesn't automatically disappear; t has to be manually edited out.  Just look for the {{Unsourced}} and erase it.

I am unable to erase.  I am using a Samsung Galaxy S7.
I have a Galaxy S7. With my phone, I can open the page in edit mode and backspace to remove a template.

Hi Wesley

Actually, at first glance most of the sources are from Ancestry, including the dreaded 'US and International Marriage Records'. Personally, I believe FindaGrave should never be used as a definitive source, just as a 'see also'.

The whole needs slow and careful tidying-up and cleaning so that you can see 'the woods for the trees'.

I agree with you, up to a point, on Find A Grave,  but if one goes to this particular site, one can see more information,  and photos of historical markers.v

Because none cite a finite source, the sources only relate to periphial web sites. 

I trust the template "Unsourced" will not be removed

I see County Courthouse records in there.

It's like I said above: "The whole needs slow and careful tidying-up and cleaning so that you can see 'the woods for the trees'."
