So are you saying the mother's name is not Smith?  Or that Smith-39571 is the wrong mother?  Changes occur when someone makes them.  If you get on the trusted list you can make the changes.  Otherwise, you can as the profile manager to make the changes.  You should have good sources for any changes you want made.

There is a duplicate of Mayme Gillilan.

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Gillilan-72 - the Mayme married Rardin.

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Gillilan-27 - the Mayme with unknown marriage, green locked like her mother.

They should be merged into Gillilan-27. Because of the green lock, the other profile manager needs to be the one completing the merge. I think she will respond to a request quite promptly; I have collaborated with her quite a lot on merges.
