Keeney-244 profile should be open IMHO.

My reply: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Keeney-244 The profile shows a green open lock. Both the public & private view show the same information in just slightly different formats.

James: Thank you so much for all your work on Allison profiles. Watch out for the date/typo errors. I was looking at James Allison's daughter Mandy Allison. She is his daughter, but her birthdate was 1872, not 1892. I have added her back in.

Hi James, I noticed you changed the birth date on Walter Palmer-70 from 1589 (the date used by Robert C. Anderson in the Great Migration series) to Oct 1585. What's your source for this date please? Thanks.
