Beach-38 Unmerged match

Mary (Wheeler) married three times, 1) Samuel Fairchild, 2) Benjamin Beach, and 3) Thomas Yale.

The profile for Beach-38 seem to be a duplicate for this Mary Wheeler, but the Beach "parents" will need to be detached, before a merge can be proposed. Thanks!

Wheeler-6172 and Wheeler-1403 appear to represent the same person because: One has the spouse, the other has the parents and siblings.
