Should Perdue-1067 and Perdue-8 be merged?

I believe Perdue-1067 and Perdue-8 (for Meshack Perdue) should be merged.  However, my merge was rejected.  I believe it is a valid merge, so I don’t know how to proceed.  

Perdue-1067 has no sources.  

In both entries Meshack is married to Dillon-23.  

The birth dates are different (within 6 years).  Perdue-1067 says Meshack was born 'about' 1750 in Chesterfield Co; Perdue-8 says 1756 (although, in the notes, it says several dates were found and 1756 was picked) in Rocky Mount, Franklin Co.  There are other Perdue members who have competing birthplaces (Chesterfield vs Franklin Counties).   

Death dates differ by 37 years.  That is a problem.  

I have a file that lists William Uriah Perdue, Jr’s children.  One of them is Meshack, born 1756 in Chesterfield VA.  No mention of a second son, Meshack.  

Perdue-8 has Meshack’s will.  Perdue-8 is missing 5 of Meshack’s children, including Zachariah (the only child in Perdue-1067).  

This seems like too many 'coincidences' for Perdue-8 and Perdue-1067 not to be the same person.

Yes I think they should merge. I have looked for over a year trying to find info on a second Meshack Perdue and I have not found anything that proves there were two Meshack's.
