Davis-43893 and Davis-68576 appear to represent the same person because: Hi,

The Davis-43893 and Davis-68576 are the same person and should be merged. Please let me know if this is acceptable. I created the Davis-68576 when I started to add his spouse I notice she already had a profile and then found the Davis-43893.
