Hallett-291 and Hallett-1 appear to represent the same person because: Hallett-291 was a non-existent person, needs to be merged away.

Hi Erin I see you adopted this profile for Abigail Hallett and her brother Thomas. Thank you. They are certainly not the children of Richard Bourne and Bathsheba Hallett. I thought they might be children of Bathsheba by a different marriage but alas no, they aren't. They need to be disconnected from this couple. Then Abigail could be merged in [[Hallett-1|Abigail (Hallett) Alden. Thomas is a little tougher. There are no records in Massachusetts between 1625 and 1700 for a Thomas Hallett. He will need to have his first name changed and merged into another Hallett profile. We could just leave them hanging loose. Do you have any thoughts or objections? Post a comment here, I'll come back and read it eventually.

Hallett-482 and Hallett-1 appear to represent the same person because: Looks like a typo in the death year.

Despite popular opinion Ann Besse was only the mother of Mehitable, not the older Hallett children. See the bio. She will need to be removed form the children's profiles and replaced with Unknown-416108 Objections?
