Yeah, but don't use a guesstimate of "after this date" if you have a "before this date" on the other spouse.  Both statements are true, but it throws an error that won't go away until you use a date that may not be at all even close to factual.

The first wife died the same year as the second wife, if the profile numbers are correct.

The source given for both wives says the second wife survived him and remarried, dying in 1692. The source does not give a death year for the first wife, but the same year is used as a death date for her, for no reason stated on the profile of the first wife.

The source being this, at the bottom of the page (Judge Hiram Willey's entry) and then the next page.
