This is my ancestor and he was recently merged, which is good.  Now the profile needs a bit of cleaning and sourcing.   So I went to the sources I had and thought I would comment them in and try to find the others.

What are the "Hunter Lists"?    There is so much information here that seems to have no sources whatsoever except other trees?   As far as I can tell other than the Hunter Lists, the only other actual source is Henry Jones's book?  

And it is my understanding that I can not myself edit this profile unless I join the project?

It is advised that you hold off on editing a PPP (project protected profile) until consulting the project.  This profile is not PPP and can be edited by anyone, that's what collaboration is all about.  In most cases, a profile is only PPP if there is some sort of issue like erroneous parents that people keep attaching, removing, attaching, removing...

That being said, it is only polite to notify the existing profile managers of any changes you are making.  This can be done by sending a PM, leaving a message on the profile page, or filling out the little box explaining your changes.  Sometimes I leave the changes I want to make, with the source, as a message on the profile.

Yes, I have tracked down that source.  Lou Macwethy was apparently using a document called Simmerdingers Register.   From what Walter Knittle says in his book, Simmerdinger was a German immigrant that returned to Germany and published his account of the emigration and a list of the people who emigrated, their names, where they were from, their families, and where they settled.  That pamphlet was translated by Rev. Herman Vesper and published by Lou Macwethy.   But his book is still copyright protected so I can't find it online : )
