will the real Mary Walker please stand up

Walker-25837 and Walker-2075 appear to represent the same person and are both managed by the same profile manager. Since they share parents/name & birth date (but have overlapping husbands), I proposed a merge, asking the PM to take a look. The merge received default approval but I think they are not the same person, despite the similarities (so I postponed it).

Anyone want a challenge?

btw, they have different FindAGrave memorials:

Liz, neither find a grave has a headstone, and death dates out by 5 years. One tree on Ancestry seems to infer twins, Elizabeth and Mary, but not sources . Going to search FMP now.

Edited to add - found nothing on FMP
Thanks Marion!

There is also some confusion between Walker-25837 and Walker-1107.  They are both indicated as being the spouse of Thomas Massie of New Kent, VA.  A merge was proposed but rejected.  I believe that these two profiles are conflated.

The parish records of St Peter's parish, New Kent, VA may be useful in sorting these issues.

Thanks David - found marriage of Mary & Massie in the parish register... in 1698-9.

Definitely a different Mary!
