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.
