I removed the "Burial Hill at Plymouth, Massachusetts" image and the Memorial monument image for William Brewster. Both refer to the son, not this profile. The images can be found on Brewster-4, for William Brewster of the Mayflower.

Brewster-1662 and Brewster-131 appear to represent the same person because: Whitney Rapp is correct. This profile is a seeming match for Brewster-131. Same dates. Same places. Same wife. Same daughter. This match should not have been rejected. Have not checked yet, but wife and daughter may also need to be merged. This profile has no documentation or bio, so probably best to "wipe it clean" before merging.
