Allen-28319 and Allen-19 appear to represent the same person because: Son of Samuel Allen of Windsor, CT. Birth date and location, death date, and fathers match.

Some mismatch between these two profiles; recommend further work be performed to source or verify information provided.

But there was only one Samuel Allen of Windsor with a son named Nehemiah during this time period. As such, I strongly recommend a merge.
