Review Oliver Prescott and wife Ann/Nancy

I was trying to place Lydia Ann Prescott (Groton) 1802-1804 and discovered that her parents (Oliver and Ann) were not on Wikitree.  Then I started tripping over Oliver Prescotts - I think I untangled them properly.  In the process I ran into Oliver and Ann in Groton and Newburyport - it's really Ann that I have issues with, Oliver marries "Nancy" Whiting in Hollis, NH, but then has children with "Ann" Whiting - starting 1 year later. Death record for one of their daughters shows "Ann" as of Newburyport while that for another daughter shows "Ann" as of Hollis NH.  A further complication is that the entry for Oliver (&Lydia parents of Oliver) says "seven" children, while Oliver makes 8.  I feel like I just knitted a sweater and have all these loose bits of yarn left over and sticking out. A second set of eyes would make me feel better.
