A couple of different maiden names for 1st wife, Ellen, have been proposed, including Whitehead and Prigg. As far as I can tell, both are without any evidence. Both Jacobus and Torrey report her as Ellen _______.
1. Should we create a profile for Ellen (Unknown)?
2. If so, should we merge the profiles for Ellen Whitehead and for Ellen Pigg into the new Ellen (Unknown)? Of course, if either of them actually existed, we want to retain them, and detach the marriage. Currently, neither has a source which points to any evidence (just family tradition or trees, etc).
I'm not familiar with the family and don't have time to do real research right now. So, thank you in advance for your help.
