Hi - noticed you changed the death date of Taliaferro-71 to 1 Feb 1727 with the comment " as per source". If you read the biography, there are two primary sources for his death, one that says he was deceased in 1711 and another that mentions his wife as his administratrix in 1688. Most likely, you are using one of the various old secondary sources, but obviously when a secondary source conflicts two primary sources, it has to be discarded.

I tried several times to change the name to Lotspeich and it kept coming back to Wallis. Upon further investigation it appeared to be a duplicate, which I have now merged. I adopted her to change the name. Now it's fixed, I've taken my name off as profile manager as there is one now after the merge. Lopspeich-485

You said, "Hamilton-12554 and Hamilton-3062 appear to represent the same person because: Clear Duplicate. Exact dates, same spouse and child." This one also appears to be the same Hamilton-12982.
