Two Different People Under One Identifier Code
My ancestor James Throop is the son of Benjamin and Mary Burgess Throop. He was born in Litchfield, CT, and was very much alive in 1842 as evidenced by a US census record from Plymouth, CT in 1850, naming James Throop and Huldah Humiston Throop, his wife, as residents in the home of Elizabeth Catlin. Also a resident is Huldah Kilborn, who I believe is the Mother of Huldah Humiston Throop, Huldah Humiston Kilborn. (I found a family tree listing Huldah Gilbert Humiston's second marriage to a Mr. Kilborn, making her Huldah Gilbert Humiston Kilborn.)
On the other hand, you have another James Throop, the son of Susanna Bills Throop and John Rutherford Throop, who was born in New Haven, CT in 1790. A researcher named Richard Belcher (from a Wiki family tree) found that this James left Hartford, CT in 1817, married a woman named Calcina Nichols in 1812, and lived in Meadville, Crawford County, Pennsylvania where he died May 15, 1842 and was buried.
The problem is the fact that you have these two men under one identifying code, LZ1Z-HLK.
I have researched the Throop family for more than ten years. Susanna and John's son James is a descendant of William Throop IV and William Throop V. This branch has an illustrious and rich history. The James Throop who is the son of Benjamin and Mary Burgess Throop is the son of a Revolutionary War Patriot, Benjamin. This branch of the Throop family has a fascinating history, starting with Charles I England and including the separation of two Throop sons, Calvin and Samuel, and a daughter Abigail, from Benjamin and Mary's household due to the fact they were British loyalists. They founded their own settlement in Canada and are buried there. I've read about the Throop settlement in (Ottawa) Canada, and their brothers James and Daniel visited them there. (Both of those brothers are buried in Connecticut and remained loyal to the USA, like their father and mother, and other siblings.)
Please acknowledge that these two men are separate individuals, and thus should not be identified with the identifying code they share, HZ1Z-HLK. Mary Burgess Throop and Susanna Bills Throop each gave birth to a child they named James. I believe there is enough evidence to support the fact that they both existed and should have different identifying codes.
Just curious: when you say things like "you have ....", whom do you believe yourself to be addressing with that "you"?
James Throop LZ1Z-HLK is a confusing conflation of at least two different people, yes, but that conflation was caused entirely by fellow users of FamilySearch's Family Tree. This is not a matter of the same ID being "assigned" to two different people, but of incorrect changes being made, combining the two people. The way to fix it is to separate them, by undoing those incorrect changes. If they go back too far for that (which I think they might, because I can't figure out where they happened, in the profile's change log), then you'll simply need to create a new profile for the other James Throop, and replace the other guy with the new profile in his relationships.
(There may be a third guy involved here: there's record at the very beginning of the change log of someone with a father named Jonathan Churchill.)
If this degree of change log excavation is beyond your skills or energies, say so: perhaps someone else in this Community will be willing to step in and assist.5
