Something I don't get ! Joseph was either a very busy man, or he has too many wives in his profile that is managed by a slew of people ... or the dates are way off.

As showing with the three wife profiles, I have Margaret (Chesebrough) Stanton marrying Joseph Stanton Sr. in 1696 at age 19. She then is listed as having 9 children before her death at age 73 in 1751. The second wife is Mary (Starkweather) Stanton who is listed as marrying the same Joseph Stanton in 1705 and bearing him 11 children before he death in 1727 at age 38 ! And meanwhile I have another wife, Esther (Gallup) Stanton marrying yet the same Joseph in the same year of 1705 and bearing him 4 children before she died in 1751 at age 68.

I can't believe I accidentally downloaded extra wives. Can someone help me ?

Check the data conflict , someone did not see the difference on the names John and Joseph and the birth dates 1968, 1965 and 1717 when they performed the last merges

Someone with knowledge of this line should take a look ad fix errors around Joseph Stanton, Sr.

I'll try to remember to correct this tomorrow. I deal with the Gallups. I see the data conflicts Bjorn, good catch.

I have started sourcing some of the Profiles from the book 'A record, genealogical, biographical, statistical, of Thomas Stanton, of his descendants. 1635-1891 (1891)', it seems several Profiles have been wrongly merge.
