Help required to sort out marriage of half brother and sister.

John Catt married Mary Morgan on 4th June 1711. John Catt's parents were Stephen Catt and Elizabeth Coleman but he, John, is listed as a half brother of Stephen and Elizabeth's other children, yet he is the third child of the couple, born 3 years after their marriage. How so? Also listed, in error, as a child of Stephen Catt and Elizabeth Coleman, is Mary Morgan although she is only linked to Stephen Catt as her father.

I think the two Mary Morgan profiles, Morgan 3898 and Morgan-9884, need to be merged but this has previously been rejected.

I have no idea how to resolve John's half sibling status, if in fact it proves to be an error.

My tentative attempt to edit one of these profiles was halted by the pre-1700 "requirement". Good thing too, because the more I look at this, the more unsure I become as to how to approach a fix. Help please.

The relevant profiles are; Catt-58, Morgan-3898, Catt-66, Coleman-2021 and Morgan-9884.

Evidently same woman got misplaced in the wonderful world of the internet. [[Morgan-9884|Mary Morgan]] is unsourced and adds nothing at all. Detach from father and set up the merge so she doesn't get lost. I'll deal with it.
