Found generic birth year (abt 1640), later found specific birthdate on Find a Grave (11-5-1639)? Not only is it PRE-1700, but it’s also Find a Grave and not exactly a reputable source. Is it possible to UPDATE the info in EDIT, AND check the “uncertain” box? I want to make sure I do this correctly! THANK YOU!

If you look at the Monument, the date on the monument is 164-.   I doubt very much that the specific date is correct.   I would ask the manager of the FindAGrave memorial for their source of such a specific date before changing anything on the profile.
