Will respond back as soon as I can to anything, but having to pay attention to the living people first.
Anticipate having more time come middle of May, however won't be able to fully work on profiles in depth as I was likely until October. But will still monitor edited profiles that I manage, make minor changes and watch for merges etc to ensure basic housekeeping is kept up
As of last weekend, I completed a very important journey in helping 3 people locate their birth fathers. It was a lesson in humanity, sociology and truly understanding genealogy at a different level.
I have adopted all orphan Bewley, Millhorn, Cullom and Hargis Profiles on Wikitree(including non related ones), and all orphans that show in my "family", many of whom I don't have in my own personal tree. These get immediately reviewed then put in either the unsourced/unconnected ques, or my updating ques. I also have created profiles for some interesting people I find in the news articles I have read such as the boy who trained a Squirrel at 9, or have other reason such as creating profiles for the family from Finland that I'm trying to get a box of Memorabilia back to from about 1900.
I know have settled in on a que format of updating and that I work off my watch list and update profiles as they come up as "last updated" and it's making for a very fun time on wiki tree.. As I delve deeper and deeper on the ones who I created when I first got here, I'm finding sources I never imagined before and adding them .. I try to spend at least 10-15 minutes updating each profile if not longer, and if I can't find new sources I make note of where I looked and what routes i explored.
I also will dedicate a few hours here and there specifically to connect my unconnected or unsourced profiles. Once I find at least once "source" the profile then falls into the que mentioned above. I think I have about 2,200 profiles I manage right now and about 90 are unsourced - about 85 of those are adopted and if I truly in the end can not support the person or know it's a "bad" profile I merging it away or reusing it.
My final fun and Goal is to start expanding into transcription of Wills, Clips of Newspaper articles, and many of the other thousands of documents and records I have for each person. As I create people though if there is a photograph that does not require transcription I am uploading it immediately.
My parents first collided in their ancestry at: William Hoo right now.. will be interesting to see overtime if it becomes closer then that and if under evidence that link holds up. This makes William the 19th great grandfather of Linda. This makes William the 18th great grandfather of Roger. Roger and Linda are 19th cousins once removed which means that if any one of those (8,388,607+4,194,303=)12,582,910 people had chosen a different person or died before they made my ancestor I wouldn't be here.
As of the 31st of January that has changed and is now they are 18th cousins twice removed at Roger Lewknor
As of Feb 15th it is now Marion Crawford Houston Roger and Linda are 16th cousins
I have one line of DNA showing up that I am a close match too - Cullom - I have no idea where they fit in, but is confirmed likely tied to my Roberts line. It may perhaps be related to either James Henry's size or Malvina - however may in fact be Matlock's wife Zilphas family..
How am I ever going to be able to use proven by DNA, still confuses me to much on here and the notation? maybe one day, but in the interim I'm happy let others set it up - I currently have at least 18 common ancestors going back to 3rd and 4th great grandparents I know my DNA Matches along with other lines.
Here is my todo list: To Do List
Here is my work in progress Confirmed DNA Ancestors, list of Last Names and their status, Those who fought in 1776 and those here before 1700.
My documents can be found at this link, or on my Ancestry tree: Wheeler's Documents

Regarding Allie Posey Smith, you added or changed the place of death but listed no source. It would be considerate to contact the manager of an "Active" profile before making changes. Thanks, Bettie

Thank you for the work you are doing to reduce the suggestions. Can I ask you to ensure you make a note in the status when you correct the profiles as this saves time for others when they check the profile.
The list is update once a week so the suggestion remains on the list until Monday evenings.

Thank you for the postings, however it just gets me anxious to link these two orphans with my ancestors. Sometime in the late 1700's, Joseph Bowker (Bowker-47) left Scituate, Mass and settled in Phippsburg, Sagadahoc County, Maine and proceeded to have about 12 children, the first in 1762. I'm wondering if any of them travelled further downeast to settle in Washington County. I'm going to have to do some digging. What are your sources for the data you posted?
