I found a bunch of unconnected siblings with no parents, I need help connecting them.

I found a bunch of orphaned profiles that appear to be siblings.  I adopted one of them so I could find them later.  The biographies of each of them list the fact that they are siblings, but the parent's names are not shown.  They appear to have been created by a botched GEDCOM import.  

The profiles list a marriage date for the unknown parents as 10 sep 1785 in Dighton, Massachusetts.  How can I find out the names of their parents with only that information?

 

Edit: I realize now that only some of them show that information.  Half of them do not, but they've been linked to the ones who do.

Peleg and Lydia do have WT profiles - See the profile for Jonathan Lewis (linked in Mary's).  User S Stevenson seems to be working them pretty hard today.

Good find, D.

It looks like you may have happened upon a GEDCOM upload which disintegrated up impact. There's a project for that. See the Lost and Found Project page.
