There are two Thankful Hardings married to Richard Paine. Nov 16, not 15 is the correct marriage date, but which information is correct for Thankful (Harding) Paine or is any of it correct? I did a merge comparison, and the only information that comes close to matching is who they are married to, the marriage date and the children’s names. Thank you for your help!

As the marriage is in Barnstable, more likely to be Thankful born 1741.

"Massachusetts Marriages, 1695-1910," database, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FC4N-ZTL : 9 February 2018), Richard Paine and Thankful Harding, 11 Nov 1762; citing reference ; FHL microfilm 907,350.

Norfolk and Barnstaple are approx 80 miles apart
Thank you for clearing that up for me. I need access some old Massachusetts maps. So I should disconnect the incorrect one?
I would, but leave a note on both profiles, in Research Notes, stating what you have done and why, with a link to the other profile. This will help if anyone is considering changing things.
