I changed Kenneth Robbins to birth father. He was married to my great aun as his second wife and I also interviewed a cousin of Ken´s later in life. don´t think there is any dispute.

Agree, but checking in with the person that changed him to non-biological to find out their reasoning....

UPDATE the change was an error as the result of a merge. Thanks for catching it!
