Edwards-21 and Edwards-21658 appear to represent the same person because: Same DOB, DOD, parents, and spouse.

Edwards-74 and Edwards-21 appear to represent the same person because: I am doing research on the ancestors of Delmer Ellery Edwards, from Fort Fairfield, ME. His father was Gen. Clark S. Edwards, whose father was Enoch Edwards. In doing my search on Wikitree for Enoch, I noticed that there were two Enochs, with the same wife (Clark's mother) yours and another "orphaned" Enoch profile. I adopted the orphan and am proposing a merge. Thank you, Jennifer
