New Netherland profile with wrong parents

I wanted to add some information and sources to the profile, however it represents a DIFFERENT Johannes Wiltse.  Please see the bulletin board messages on this profile, and sources DAR Ancestor #: A127955,,

WikiTree profile: Johannes Wiltsie

Wow that is a mixed up mess I see from your notes there - get the right people attached together and get them all protected by the project once the mess is untangled and good luck with it - I had a couple of same name messes and it takes a lot to get them back right.

I am glad you get the gist of it.  We can't just turn this Johannes Wiltsie into Johannes Wiltse.  Johannes Wiltsie is the father of Mary (Wiltsie) Reasoner, while Johannes Wiltse is the father of Elizabeth (Wiltse) Brinkerhoff. 

If I have the permission from the New Netherland Settlers group, then I will move this unsourced person away from  and  and create a new son with the sources that I have found.

The profile is currently unsourced. If you have sources, please post them.

There is no point in entering the sources (see above) into THIS profile, since this is not the same person.  I will create a new profile for the sources above, but I don't want the new profile merged into this profile.  I think if you re-read my original question, you will understand what I mean.  Also, review the TWO bulletin board messages on the current profile.  Thank you.
