This woman needs to be demoed from his file.  Accidentally belies this is Mary so maybe  her name was Maru Anne or Anne Marie??

Your question is unclear. Do you want to disconnect this woman from the current husband, and attach her to someone else? Or, simply disconnect her?

You can edit a marriage by clicking the Edit tab, looking to the right side of the edit page for the Edit Family section, locating the Spouses: section, and clicking the add/remove spouse link to go to the marriage editing page.

To replace the current spouse with a new spouse, simply enter the new spouse's WikiTreeID into the box next to the green GO button, and click the GO button.

Post back if you have any problems with this procedure.

According to this bio

Thomas jr was married to an Annie in the 1900 census, having been married to a Mary in 1880.

Evidently Annie Anonymous was created to be this mysterious 2nd wife.

I've reconnected her.

But the 1900 census also says they'd been married 34 years.  So it looks like Annie could be the 1st wife in disguise.

The only Mary I see on the 1880 census is their daughter. His wife is listed as Anna.

His wife's name was Anne (Annie) Dudderidge. I see no record at all with her name listed as Mary. What makes you believe that is her name? Here is her baptismal record:

    I've done some editing and have proposed a merge of the two profiles. You should be able to merge them immediately.

    I have changed Mary Dudderidge's name to Anne. Unless you can provide a source for the name "Mary", you should leave it as Anne. I cannot find a single record where her name is recorded as Mary.

    Thanks to all of you.  As you perhaps are aware, my sight is not the best and I still haven't figured out how to change my computer.  I know where to go but cannot see where to make the change to change colours.

    Am most grateful to all of you.
    If you're on a Windows-based PC go to Settings > Ease of Access

    Under Vision choose High Contrast. On the next screen turn on High Contrast. A new window will open that will let you choose the color theme that best suits you.

    Hope that helps.
    Unfortunately, I use only APPLE - have both an iPad and a MacBook Air.  I really like both machines but can't seem to get the colours changed or get larger print.  Guess I will have to phone the Apple Company for some help.

    Thsnks for your help.
