Is there someone who can help me correct a bad merge of Jordan-191 and Jordan-603?

+3 votes
There was a bad merge made between Jordan-191 and Jordan-603, two men named Charles Jordan who died in Chowan County, NC in 1777 (on different days).  The details of justification for two individuals is listed in the comments on the Jordan-191 profile. There are YDNA matches on the FTDNA Jordan Surname Project showing that they are indeed two different men.

Guidance on how to un-merge these two profiles would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for the information Eddie King.  

Since a duplicate entry for Charles Wesley Jordan, husband of Hellenah, already exists, I am migrating the data for this Charles Jordan to the profile Jordan-10170. His male descendants with the Jordan surname are in the JG-08 YDNA line.

Charles Jordan, husband of Abigail White, will retain Jordan-191 (formerly Jordan-603) as most of the biography and supporting information is relevant to this Charles Jordan and there is no duplicate. His male descendants with the Jordan surname are in the JG-03 YDNA line.

I believe that I have made all of the corrections to assign the proper children to each man.  Please check to see that you have the correct ancestor linked in your tree. Potential DNA matches will update in 24 hours.
Do you have a listing of the children of Charles Jordan and Abigal White

Merges can't be undone. One man is merged away and a new profile will have to be created for him. Any spouses and children will then have to be detached from the merged profile and attached to the re-created lost man. Be sure to cite good sources so that another bad merge doesn't occur in the future
