Can you provide your sources for this merge?   The profile indicates that this person may not even be the daughter of Patrick.  Thanks!

Isn't "The Peerage" not even a pre-1700 valid source? Please correct me if I'm wrong.
You're right Loretta .The site 'the Peerage' isn't considered a reliable source by many of us hence the controversy about it being used by wikidata. There's still an awful lot of existing  profiles that have used it as the main or only source.

The comment references The Scottish Peerage by Sir Robert Douglas written in the 18th C . (Not being into Scottish genealogy I can't  say how authorative a  source it is . The  Scottish Clans reliable sources page has yet to be written but the author of the research note is  very experienced in Scottish genealogy.)
Ahhh, thanks Helen didn't realize was two separate sets of work by different authors.  Will have to investigate a profile source I had and was not using to see which author it was or the website, it was shot down in G2G.  So probably the website.
I agree, the sources I have only show that Patrick had 2 sons. However, Graham-3651 and Graham-620 are definitely duplicates. Just wondering. Should they be merged and deleted from Patrick? Because I'm not pre-1500 Cert. there's only so much I can do. Should I remove myself as PM from Graham-3651?
