Brinton-194 and Brinton-59 appear to represent the same person because: her birth and death dates are similar, although the daughters on Brinton-194 are too young to be hers'

Hello, Elizabeth Baker and Olive Harris can't be her daughters, she was 74 and 96 when they were born. Her DOB and DOD are similar to Brinton-59, I suspect they are duplicates.
