Dave, thanks for explanation that the issue was that it was NOT the New England Adams family. Perhaps a note to that effect is in order?

Dave, you removed father John Adams of John Adams but Adams-28453 looks to me like you did not correct the bio. Would you take a look? Thanks

When you see a grave marker and you know that the person was buried there, there is the option of putting [ [ uncertain: death location ] ] (with no spaces seperating the box brackets) to that this is likely to be the place of death. Further on in the profile, we leave and explanation as to why it's uncertain. I was taught this here. Somebody told me that it was the standard way when we have grave information. It seems that too many people want or expect for things to be done in a different way, making it nearly impossible to create merge for profiles. If there are a hundred people with dates only, and no location, they get skipped over during merges, because you have to look through the entire profile to see if you can find any indication of location.
