Restore facts for anonymous orphan?

anonymous anonymous is an unsourced orphan with no facts other than death place. Is it appropriate to restore facts based on the change history, then add sources? Born 1912. Died 1978

I would restore the profile. The individual who made these changes is apparently no longer active on WikiTree. There may be other orphaned profiles out there who relate to this one and can be found and connected.

Anonymous Lathrop, the manager , vandalized quite a few profiles. I sent a note to Eowyn about it.

Thanks Eddie! I didn't even think that it would be vandalism. Sigh...

She was from Marshalltown Iowa, where some of my family was from.  While no direct family connection, I just couldn't let that sit.

So I restored and sourced her.  I also added her parents and siblings.  All sourced.   All profiles abandoned and ready for adoption.

Any errors or omissions are unintentional.

Thanks Craig. I'm not related, nor were my ancestors in Marshalltown. Profiles with no birth date or no birth place just irk me. Hey, that sure was an easy way for me to source a profile!
