Davis-9224 and Davis-5710 do not represent the same person because: Davis-5710 is incorrect. Her brother Simon born 1660's and his wife are attached as her parents. Some of her nieces/nephews are listed as siblings. Simon b. 1660's did not have daughter Sarah.

Davis-14332 and Davis-5710 appear to represent the same person because: Let's merge these, as they have the same name and date of birth, and mine married a lifelong resident of Concord, which makes her very likely identical with yours.

Davis-9411 and Davis-9224 are not ready to be merged because: Duplicated profile from unsourced gedcom. All parents/siblings/children need to be check and compared for accuracy and sources. The gedcom was inaccurate in many cases.

I need to reformat the page and sources to current standards. Chris
