I inadvertantly omitted child # 11 (Stephen) from my family sheet in image #2 as I had listed him on the back of my family group sheet.

Sherwood-204 and Sherwood-217 seem quite similar but not enough for a merge. Yet they married the same spouse on the same date. Can someone review these marriages? (editing for date errors . . .)

Sherwood-217 and Sherwood-411 appear to represent the same person because: Hi Jennifer, I'm proposing we merge our two profiles of Daniel Sherwood. He is obviously one and the same, other than your birth date of 1736, and mine of 20 Nov 1735.

I have merged these two duplicate profiles for you. Now it needs tidying up. For help on GEDCOM cleanup, please check this link for additional help.
