The first thing I see is that you have the first 5 people entered incorrectly.

,BUSH James
,ZIMMERMAN Elizabeth
Adams, Anna
Bush, James
Grizzle, John
Woodring, Albert
Zimmerman, Elizabeth

The second five entries are correctly done. IE:
,ADAMS Anna should be as the second (Adams, Anna)

Get rid of the the incorrect entries and make sure the links are correct and still with the second set. You are showing (Adams, Anna) as one big last name in (ADAMS Anna). Match merge will have problems with that.
