Hi Peter! And welcome to WikiTree!  I see you’ve already created the profile for Edward. I know someone will come along with sources I can’t access (I have an Ancestry acct., but no Internatinal access). 

You’ll want to take a look at the spouse. If you are unsure who the wife is, that info would fit better in the bio. You’ve created a profile with “poss” preceding the names you’ve supplied. Set up like that, it would make it nearly impossible for someone to search the wife’s name. WikiTree automatically set up the wife’s name as PossLummas-1, and I know you didn’t intend to for last name to get labeled that way. That profile, the “poss” one, will definitely need to be edited for more clarity since it’s already been created.

Again, welcome to WikiTree. Be sure to read the intro material and videos. Here’s a good starting place: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:How_to_Use_WikiTree
