How to data-doctor a profile born 1700s, died 1800s, yet "still living" and the profile is set to highest privacy level? In other words there is no drop-down menu in which to click on 'Open Profile Request'. Oxely-2 is but one example.

did you try contacting the profile manager, it looks like he was active today
If you do get access you might also want to take a look at why a 1700s profile is showing as a Pending Family Member.
I did send a private message, as my experience with leaving comments on the profile is they seem to never be noticed. I just like my instant gratification-- click on the request and the right thing is done, thanks to Paul. There's a whole slew of profiles with the same error #120. And, remarkably, considering the honor code, etc., I've come across folks who just want to keep "their" profiles to themselves.

The profile is a "family member" with an email address, which is why the profile is red privacy and still living.
