The profiles of George Squire who died in 1691 ( Squire-109 and Squires-311 ) cannot yet be merged because two different fathers are given.  George Squire and George Squires were both born in 1618.  Is there any good evidence which of them is the George Squire who died 1691 in Fairfield, Connecticut.

Hi Lexi,

      Unfortunately that information is incorrect. There seems to be no George Squire born in 1618 whose father was named Samuel. 

 The George Squire born at Gainsborough was born 01 March 1618 and his father's name was John.  He could be our George Squire, but there is another possibility: 

The George Squire who was actually born on 13 September 1618 was born at Milbrook, Bedfordshire (son of James Squire):  "England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J3ZC-ZDM : 11 February 2018, George Squyre, 13 Sep 1618); citing , index based upon data collected by the Genealogical Society of Utah, Salt Lake City; FHL microfilm 599,351.

Samuel has been disconnected as father. There is no proof for him as parent. The Samuel listed on the many cloned Ancestry trees was Never in Bedfordshire.
