Becker-7845 and Becker-7393 appear to represent the same person because: I didn't see my great-grandmother Ruth Farmer's profile when I started adding it (WikiTree showed no possible matches), so I will need to merge with your profile of her. WikiTree won't allow any deletions, unfortunately. Thank you.
