I'd like you to revisit the unmerged match between this profile and Green-5272. They are obviously the same person, with discrepancies in dates and places of birth and death. There don't seem to be any sources for the birth on either profile. Green-5272 has the text of his will, showing clearly that his property was in New Jersey, so he is unlikely to have died in Massachusetts. If they are two different people, then the wives and children should be detached and added to Green-5272.
