Can anyone explain the "wee den" in her name?

Martha Marshall daughter of Thomas Mashal 1545-1618 and Mary Cotton 1553-1625 ???

Potter-84 has no proven parents. Objections to disconnecting?
posted by Anne B
These marriage & parentage links mean that Martha married her nephew [son of her sister Elizabeth]!!
posted by Mona (Dickson) Jensen
I approved the merger, but was first to do so. Unable to change the merge order, I hoped the other person would do so. I noticed that Martha was still listed as unknown, but could not make the correction after merger, since it is pre-1700. The name does need to be changed. I cannot vouch for this being the correct name, however, since i do not have a surname in my database.

If we know that her parents were named Marshall, why is her name listed as "unknown"?
posted by Bob Tonsmeire
Unknown-155192 and Marshall-5410 appear to represent the same person because: Same name, same parents, same husband , death date needs to be reconciled
posted by Bob Tonsmeire
Unknown-155192 and Martha-161 are not ready to be merged because: further research comparing children necessary
posted by Dawn Ellis
Unknown-155192 and Potter-3727 appear to represent the same person because: same dates
