I have a big problem with profile Boggs-1169.  The dates have to be for another William Boggs but, I can not figure it out.  There is a father, James Boggs married to Margaret Hutchinson and Rebecca Moray.   Please straighten out this Boggs profile  Thank you.

His mother would have been 60 years old when he was born. I believe this profile is conflated and they've mixed the father's data with the son's. In addition, none of these are his parents. He was born in 1792. Father appears to be Aaron Boggs born 1650 and died 1732. I'll see what I can do with it.

Thank you so very much.
I've sorted the issue with William Ellison Boggs and corrected his birth and death info and attached him to the correct parents. There appear to be more issues with this family group as there are three Williams with different birth dates attached to James Alexander. Two are married to Jane Stein (Steen) despite having different dates on them. It will take a bit more digging to sort this out and then merges will need to be made. If I can't manage to get to it tonight I will do my best to follow up tomorrow. Don't worry, we'll figure it out. ;)
