I'm thinking this profile was mis-merged with an Elizabeth Carpenter, and she is not really the child of Ephraim & Susannah Carpenter.

What got me looking was a parental conflict of one of her supposed children (David Carpenter). This Elizabeth's timeline shows 3 children born by age 9!

Even her marriage to Richard Bronson may have some inconsistencies with the age of their child (one of the two born at her age 9).

The reference in the "About" also does not seem to relate to the Carpenter branch to which she is currently 'connected'.

So maybe we need to find an Elizabeth-born-Harrison-1638 and see if she really fits there, rather than as a Carpenter child.

Elizabeth Carpenter Orvis Brunson
Dan, I agree that there is a problem. I searched around and added some references and corrected dates for Elizabeth and her 3 husbands. She is not the daughter of Ephraim who is from Oyster Bay and should be disconnected from him. She may be Elizabeth nee Welbourne.
I'm not sure how one would fix the relationships but you could try contacting all the curators.
There is a long discussion under Ephraim Carpenters profile if you want to check it out.
I don't have any info on who a Elizabeth born Harrison 1638 is.
Let me know your thoughts after you review the references,.

Even if Elizabeth is disconnected from Ephraim & Susannah, what about her children 'born at age 8 & 9'?

See below. If she was Welbourne she was born in 1620. The other woman is some other person, not related to this tree.

I did some cleanup, then ... and with a couple of her children, too.

I think you cleaned it up well and that the relationships all line up with the currently known info. Nice work.
