Currently, John Sailors (Sailors-3) is a public profile, but should be an open one as the facts (including the wife) agree with John Sailors (Sailors-26) which is sourced. John Sailors was born about 1835 and he and his family are listed in the 1860 Census Report. There is also a findagrave memorial to him. Sailors-26 is an open profile as required by the wikitree policy and style guide. I just e-mailed the profile manager about the situation as I am sure he's not aware that John Sailors was born in the 1830's.
Obviously, the merge can't be completed until Sailors-3 becomes an open profile.
