Talk:Benjamin Franklin Dillingham

Garfield Dillingham (October 9, 1881–?) married Margaret Bayard Smith in 1885 and had 4 children. It would appear from this statement that they married when he was 4 years old. (talk) 07:28, 23 August 2011 (UTC)Tom Pickett

copyvio notice[edit]

Running the Duplication Detector for this article keeps generating "Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /mnt/nfs/labstore-secondary-tools-project/dupdet/public_html/compare.php on line 275" for me, & Earwig's Copyvio Detector returns a message that it "Couldn't find any text in" The copyvio text is thus unavailable to me & probably others as well.

Looking at the diff between creation of Benjamin Franklin Dillingham & the version before copyvio tag reveals a vast difference. It is therefore likely that any copyvio was introduced sometime after the creation, & that the article should thus not be deleted but rather either edited so the copyvio is removed or reverted to the last version before the copyvio.

I surmise that the copyvio started with this edit by Dpt8217. Peaceray (talk) 17:13, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
Pinging Diannaa, who knows a lot more about dealing with copyvio than I do. – Jonesey95 (talk) 16:36, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

Birthdate: Internal Inconsistency[edit]

At present, the article states in two places that his birth date is August 4, 1844, and in another place that it is September 4, 1844. A photograph of his grave marker at Findagrave confirms September as the correct month, and further specifies his birth place as Brewster, Massachusetts (the article states "Cape Cod, Massachusetts", which is true, but Brewster, being on Cape Cod, is more specific). In the absence of convincing sources for the variant information, I will edit the article so it agrees with his grave marker. - Nunh-huh 22:56, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
