I think I see the issue.

Abraham married his first wife in 1619 and his second wife in 1625 (according to the top part of Abraham's profile); however, if you click on the first wife her profile states she died ''before 27 Sep 1628''. This conflicts with the approximated marriage year of Abraham's second wife.

If you read Abraham's Bio, it provides more information and states he married the second wife about 1629, which better corresponds with the birth dates of their children.

At face value, it appears someone made an error in entering 1625 instead of 1629 in the marriage date field. His profile is Project Protected and Pre-1700 so not just anyone can correct the error.
