Foster-5466 and Foster-5384 do not represent the same person because: No data in common to confirm they are the same profile

I concur with Kyle. Nathaniel is the key. They both have the same son, hence the same Renold/Reginald must be the same person. The fact that Foster-5466 has no other information other than his name and fact that he is Nathaniel's father would make me believe it is the same person. Why is Nathaniel listed in the "Children's list" in the Biography, though, and not in the Profile data on Foster-5384? oversight?

Foster-5466 and Foster-5384 appear to represent the same person because: See Foster Genealogy to indicate that the relationships here all relate to the same person. I think in those days "Renold" must have been a sound-alike for "Reginald"
