I see what you mean. Both Anne Harmon and Greenleaf-646 have the same birth/death dates and places. They married separate people who both were still living while children were born. It looks to me as if the wrong birth/death info may be attributed to one of them.

From what I have been able to find so far, the birth and death dates for both profiles belong to the Anne Greenleaf, daughter of Benjamin Greenleaf, who is the father on -478. The spouse on -478 is incorrect according to a source I found which shows that Harmon married Anne Greenleaf, daughter of Steven of Charlestown. So, it is likely that these two profiles are duplicates, and that the spouse on -478 needs to removed, along with the associated children.

I proposed a merge for the two profiles.

I found more sources and added them to the profile. Additionally, I created another Anna Greenleaf, as wife of Harmon (they were definitely different people), and added sources to it as well.

These two profiles should be straightened out before too long.
