Besson-45 and Besson-2 appear to represent the same person because: It looks like we have a match here with some discrepancies.

It looks like Dusty has turned up some documentation that includes sources for the name and dates. So, could you all work together to get this information into the profile with the proper citations?? If you need help, there are guidelines on the Sources help page.

I am also happy to answer questions, but I will be offline until next week.

Thanks so much!
