Atwood-377 and Atwood-4 appear to represent the same person because: clearly intended to be the same person. I doubt the late DOB on Atwood-4. The mother would've been 49. Please review and merge.
I removed daughter Margaret Atwood (who m. Thomas Hickes; there are several sources which identify her as daughter of James, not John, Atwood.

I am detaching Grenville-29 Mary Grenville as the wife of John Atwood. There is no evidence for such a marriage. The Grenville visitation pedigree shows that Mary married two other men (but not John Atwood), and a summary of the Atwood lineage here makes no mention of Mary Grenville.
