Consolidating colonial Virginia Edwards trees

I know a lot of you researching the Edwards family know that these genealogies are often contradictory. Much of the conflict during the colonial period centers around the fictitious "Thomas Nathaniel Edwards" (Edwards-1871, as well as the duplicate Edwards-8770). I'd like to start peeling off some of his erroneously assigned children and link them to their proper parents, if appropriate documentation or at least some decent theories exist. I'd also like to start sorting through and merging probable duplicates. To that end, I'd like to get input from genealogists working on his "children" and grandchildren. Assistance, counter-argument, whatever feedback is appropriate to clean this mess up as much as we can. Anyone up for discussion?

looks like this is being downvoted by some "Edwards heirs" lol
I think I'm done.

You can see my synopsis of this research here, along with what I've done on Wikitree here: https://edwardsvirginiagenealogy.blogspot.com/2020/01/who-was-thomas-nathaniel-edwards.html
