Boone-202 and Boone-657 do not represent the same person because: they are sons of different parents, although previous bad merges had muddied the differences between them. I've edited the data fields for Boone-202 to better reflect information attributed to Squire son of George.

Squire is 19 degrees from Kevin Bacon, 21 degrees from Frank Russell Capra, 17 degrees from Mark Hamill, 18 degrees from AJ Jacobs and 18 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II of the Commonwealth Realms on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
