Please be careful when merging so as not to remove important information.
Wright-28460 and Wright-9347 appear to represent the same person because: they both married margaret young and had a son named lewis king.
margaret peggy young's husband was james g wright. the son of william wright and mary grant.
Wright-9347 and Wright-28460 do not represent the same person because: Different dates of birth and death, along with different locations, and common first name (James) weigh heavily against these being a merge/match.

Wright-9347 and Wright-28460 appear to represent the same person because: Same spouse and child - Difference in dates to be noted in the biography until a source can be added.
Father of Berry Wright Sr., Phoebe (Wright) Abshire, Lewis (Wright) King, George Wright, Jane (Wright) Arthur, Daniel Wright, Mary Wright, James Grant Wright, Margaret (Wright) King, John Bishop Wright and Goodman A Wright
LAST NAME AT BIRTH should be WRIGHT.

JAMES G. WRIGHT. THE G IS PROB MOTHER'S MAIDEN NAME. GRANT.

WRONG PARENTS. AND NAME OF LEWIS FATHER WAS JAMES G. WRIGHT.

PARENTS AND SIBLINGS ARE WRONG OR WIFE AND SON ARE WRONG, CANNOT MERGE LIKE THIS.

Can't have a name with an or in it. It was probably Wright, given there is another profile for her husband. Probably should be merged.
