Project protected profile might need some clean-up

+6 votes
It seems that the profile of Captain John Greene has collected more children than appear in the official records.

Could someone who is knowledgeable please take a look?

I have no connection and no knowledge in this area, but his 'daughter' Mary Greenaway Mercer appears in my Global Connection to Carrie Fisher.  As requested by another WikiTreeer on Mary's profile, could someone please explain the discrepancy regarding Greene and Greenaway?  I have some doubt that Mary belongs here, since she is apparently not mentioned in her father's will.  However, a Mary Dyer is mentioned.  

Some of the other 'children' also aren't in the Vital Stats records or the will.

I would appreciate if someone who knows could take a look at this family, and possibly clean up the bio which seems to be the result of at least three merges

Best regards

I disconnected Mary Greenaway Mercer (Greenaway-19) from the Greene parents she was connected to. Her profile is unsourced and I don't know who she is, but her name and geography were incompatible with the parents' information.

I've added a note to John's profile about the other strays. Hopefully someone will take a look at the others, if not I suppose I'm it.

I've cleaned up John Greene's bio with inline citations and additional sources. Will look later at those children who belong to another/other John Greene(s).
