Can I change a first name on a profile with almost no info?

I'm working on some Hunsingers right now, and Anna is married to a Singley. All the sources I can find say it's David, but William's profile says he married her in 1862. Nothing supports this. Since he's not connected to anyone else, can I change him to David or do I need to start a new profile?

William has no profile manager and no connections other than Susanna, so I say if you have the sources, do it.

Edit:  I take it back.  William acquired parents, a brother, and a son, and lost his spouse, after I answered.  surprise

Butch just updated Susanna's Profile, wife of William. You might want to talk to him.

Thanks, both of you. I actually have been in touch with Butch. I'll reach out again.

William was married to Susanna Hunsinger in 1862. She appears to be the daughter of Jesse Hunsinger and Elizabeth born about 1843 in PA.

Thanks. Butch found other info on William and he is now where he belongs. Apparently, he was hitched to the wrong Susanna Hunsinger. Mine was born in 1826 and married David Singley in 1850. Her name may actually be Anna, which I thought originally. Too many Singleys married to too many Hunsingers!
Hah! I feel your pain. Certain families did seem to intermarry quite frequently one upon a time.
