https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Special:MergePerson&user1_name=Hinckley-856&user2_name=Hinckley-341&action=compare is the merge request I received. I found more info and while at first glance it looks like they could be merged, the children do not match. I have a source that lists the children and it doesn't include Experience. I also found a source for supposed husband Jonathon Orbeton but it only says he married "Thompson" with no first name.

Of course info is pointing toward Ancestry but with no membership I can't untangle the mess. I'm pretty sure it hinges around Experience and Jonathon Orbeton.

Even with an ancestry membership the source gives no clues where to look. There are several unsourced trees with Jonathan and Experience. No help there. 

A search for Experience Oberton provides a clue, but dates don’t mesh for her to marry David Keith in 1804, if Jonathan didn’t die until 1810. From Eaton, Cyrus,. History of Thomaston, Rockland, and South Thomaston, Maine : from their first exploration, A.D. 1605 : with family genealogies.

You are looking at the wrong Experience marrying  David Keith the one who married him was Jonathan and Experience's daughter Experience who was born in 1783
