Joan Pollard Saunders Husbands Need Merging Help from Pre-1500 Certified

+4 votes
Hey Pre-1500 Folks!

I clicked on the George Washington link on the front page to find our common ancestor. She is Joan Pollard Saunders and is currently linked to the following three husbands: Thomas Alexander Saunders, Thomas Alexander Saunders II, and Thomas Saunders I. I think this one needs some merging help.

Thanks for your help in advance!

Thanks, it seems to be more a problem of whether she and her husband ever existed.

At the moment, one of the husbands is also her father-in-law and from the messages it has been recognised for quite a while that there is a problem, but perhaps it's just been placed in the 'too hard basket'?

John Alexander Saunders another father-in-law has been connected to totally incorrect parents, so I will disconnect him and that might be a start in trying to work out whether any of these people actually existed.

Thanks John! After I posted I started looking at the "sources" for Joan and realized this was a much more difficult to sort out situation. The first two Ancestry links are dead links. The third one links to a profile, but the only "sources" on that profile are acceptance of two unsourced family trees.
