This is a case of the more I dig, the more confused I become.  James-2235 & James-2821 are both attached as spouses of Eaton-1049; though the men seem very similar, I don't believe them to be duplicates . I may be a case where previous merges may have muddled several profiles.  HELP

I don't think they are the same person! See https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/31569078/john-james

I know not sourced but this may help guide. There is another John James in the same cemetery but very different dates. There may have been 3 in the area but they are not the same people for sure. I would separate them. When my laptop is charged I will see if I can lend credit to the Find A Grave link but I hope in the mean time this helps you. This one goes to James-2235 I could not find the other guy at all on FindAGrave so maybe his dates are wrong or they have his location wrong. Also I will try to reverse the children listed here to see if we can find something of use to further separate them from one another.

Original data: This unique collection of records was extracted from a variety of sources including family group sheets and electronic databases. Originally, the information was

States that his birth date was 1728 so either neither or James-1914

This would mean the one I found on FAG is not the same guy at all and needs to be removed from Edith.
