This profile is the result of a merge between two profiles that agreed in most details. The major exception is the identity of Mary's father. The discussion at Isaac Wheeler indicates that Wheeler-6670 is the correct one, but the earlier version of this profile indicated that her father was Isaac Wheeler.
