Thank you for the note!
Links to sources on paid subscription sites such as Ancestry, FindMyPast, and MyHeritage can be frustrating for WikiTree members and visitors without access to these sites. We recommend searching for a freely available copy of the source document on sites such as FamilySearch, USGenWeb, Archive.org, and HathiTrust. If the source record is only available to paid subscribers, when providing the URL please also extract as much information as possible, such as relevant names, dates, and the source of the original data. Providing the source as an inline reference within the biography also helps to clarify which biographical facts are supported by the source citation.

How are you? I'm David a WikiTree Mentor. Thanks for adding profiles to WikiTree.
I see many of your sources have no source citation or direct link back to the source. Like the census records for the profile of William Octavius Ward (1874 - abt. 1954) (Ward-14160).
Sources are critically important for genealogy and you will be helping future genealogists by listing where the information you've added came from. This page describes sources and how to enter sources.
Family Search and Find a Grave are free websites for finding sources:
If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

I think my concern arose with my confusion over the generations of Charles Snyder and Charles Hickman Miller that I was reading. They are brothers in consecutive generatioins. One has father Peter C. and one has father Charles Peter. Thanks for the help.

I agreed that it was confusing and added more reasons. Your comment was not deleted, and the FAG link was kept with a disclaimer added. It's my opinion that links that lead to online family trees that have no sources and obvious errors only add to this confusion, so that I removed.
As for Derrick's comment on the other Benjamin, if you'll check the changes tab, I acted on it the same day it was posted, adding add'll MB&D content, checked for the MA VR's he mentioned (not found) and added a merge for the other Benjamin.
I did notice the 2nd wife shown for the Capt (brought in, in a merge), and all I can say at the moment, is I haven't yet spotted any evidence for her, but haven't removed her yet.

But their father b. 1620 & grandfather b. 1597, were both named John, not Jonathon.
Benjamin, son of Jonathan Washburn & Mary Vaughan, was b. 1688 & m. to Martha Kingman. Washburn-173
Benjamin, son of Samuel Washburn & Deborah Packard, was b. bef. Sep 1697 & m. to Bethiah Kingman.
It doesn't help the confusion that they both married Kingmans'.
I hope this helps.

"There is a difference in opinion as to the parents of Benjamin. Many family trees show his father to be Jonathathan born 1653. Find a grave indicates Samuel born 1652. Roy Washurn GED names Jonathan born1653 as Benjamins father . Samuel and Jonathan were brothers, both are sons of Jonathan born 1620(21), and grandsons of Jonathan born 1597. I have put a link to Roy Washburns web site and find a grave in the sources for reference."
I'm sure your intentions were good, but user generated online family trees, Gedcom's and websites such as Find-A-Grave (also user generated), are not considered solid sources here at WikiTree,
The Samuel & Jonathan you mentioned "were" brothers (2 of 7), & both had son's named Benjamin ...
