Why do my References/Sources not appear in the biography?

The text in the Biography edit window is the same format as it is elsewhere, but the Sources won't show up on this particular profile:  McCorquodale-17.

I can't figure out why.

Not sure as I can only look at your changes but it appears that you did not "close the loop" on this entry...

'''1970:''' Buried at [[space:Layton Chapel Baptist Church Cemetery|Layton Chapel Baptist Church Cemetery]] <ref>Grave Marker at Layton Chapel Baptist Church Cemetery in Anderson Creek, Harnett County, NC]

You have the "<ref>" but no "</ref>". Now it may be where I cannot see it and this may not be the problem but sometimes something as simple as this can make weird things happen.

Good catch Brian... I did indeed leave out a </ref> and when I corrected that it displayed properly.  Thanks!
