2nd wife of Joseph Benham born in 1685

+2 votes
Joseph Benham https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Benham-357 has an incorrect wife attached as his second wife.  He has become conflated with his son Joseph Benham https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Benham-357 born in 1711.

I added a conflation section to his profile with sources.  Both the father and son were married to women with the last name of Curtis. His current wife, https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Curtis-2246 is actually the wife of his son.

Joseph Benham (Benham-10) was married to a woman named Mary Curtis.  She is named in his will and I added sources for the marriage.

I would like to disconnect Curtis-2246 and attach her to her correct husband Benham-357.

I welcome your thoughts and input.  On an unrelated note, he needs a project.  Would you think that the Connecticut project would be the correct one?

Thanks for the help.

Benham-357, the son, had Em Curtis as a wife.

Connecticut will be happy to add them both.
