I was just running through changes from merged profiles (to see if any information applied to the Mary who married into the Maryland Sumners) and found that Josselyn-72 had been imported with mother/wife of Thomas as Rebecca Marlowe. Since they have the same husband, same death year, and Jude-11 includes Marlowe as the middle name with father named Jude, I'll propose a merge of Marlowe-34 into Jude-11.

update: merge was completed.

Josselyne-2 and Josselyn-72 appear to represent the same person because: wife of same man. I set the merge for Josselyne (with an e) to merge into Josselyn (without) because Josselyn-72 included parents and siblings with the Josselyn spelling. The Josselyne-2 profile connected only to husband and son Ebenezer and included no information to support the different spelling.

Thanks! Liz
