Disambiguation of multiple men named White Thunder.

There are currently two profiles in Wikitree which represent multiple men named "White Thunder."

White Thunder #1 (listed in Wikitree as White_Thunder-2 was a Cheyenne man who lived from about 1780-90 to 1838. His bio is correct, but he needs a new LNAB of Cheyenne.

His wife, Tail Woman is currently Woman-61, attached as wife to Lakota-27. She needs to be detached from the Lakota man, given a new LNAB of Cheyenne, and attached to the Cheyenne man.

He had three daughters, Owl Woman, Yellow Woman, and Island, all married to William Bent.

Owl Woman, currently Owl_Woman-1, needs new LNAB of Cheyenne

Yellow Woman currently has two profiles, Woman-46 and Thunder-12 Thunder-12 is currently incorrectly attached to Lakota-27, needs to be detached They need to be merged into one new profile for Yellow Woman Cheyenne

Island, currently Island-10, needs new LNAB of Cheyenne

I have edited and sourced bios for all four. Bios and sources could be better, but they are adequate.

White Thunder #2 was a Lakota man, birth date uncertain, killed at Rosebud, South Dakota, in 1884.

His profile is Wakinyan Ska (White Thunder) Lakota-27.

He currently has a wife and child (Woman-61 and Thunder-12) who belong to the other man.

His photo is correct - I detached it from the Cheyenne man.

His bio needs lots of work. The only part I am certain is for Lakota-27 is the last paragraph about his death. The other parts may refer to one or two totally different men. Once I sort it out I will add a Disputed section to the profile sorting out the men, who were all Lakota. He had a family, if there's enough information I will create them.
