John Hayward-172

John Hayward-621

John Hayward-1111

John Hayward-1729

all died on the same day.  Some were born the same day as well.  But none of them seem to be the same person.

Even if they are four distinct people it's easy for the incorrect death date to have propagated. For example, http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hayward-172 has a burial date of 1710, five years after his death.

Yeah, I think people searched for John Hayward of Plymouth and began using the same birth and death date. If you noticed the one married to Sara Willis got married a year after his death.
