Having spent considerable time researching the two wives of Thomas [[Bills-25]] of Shrewsbury NJ, it seems he did have two wives who were sisters named Joanna and Anna, daughters of William [[Twining-5]] of Eastham, Massachusetts. Only Joanna is listed on his profile which is Project Protected. Shotwell's Annals (pg 218) lists both of them, Clarence Tory lists both of them as separate marriages to [[Bills-25]], and there are separate primary source marriage records for both of them to [[Bills-25]]. Should Anna have a profile created for her?

Yes, please do create a profile for Anna. Write a nice if brief bio and source it properly using inline citations. Both Anna and Joanna both get mentioned in William's will.

It wouldn't surprise me if at one time there were two and they got merged together because of the similarity of names.
