Fouts-1247 and Fouts-5 appear to represent the same person because: My mistake. I did not discover Fouts-5 until I had created Fouts-1247. They are the same person. There are minor deviances in data, but they can be resolved after merge. It would be nice to add his nickname (The Miller) to Fouts-5.

Fouts-512 and Fouts-5 appear to represent the same person because: Same name, exact same spouse on both profiles with exact same marriage date. exact same parents on both profiles.

Thank you for reviewing. Teresa (WikiTree Arborist)

Concerning Patriotic Service of John Fouts in the DAR Patriot Index: I sent in a supplemental application for John Fouts and it was sent back requesting more information. The first person who used John Fouts apparently transposed two letters. The ancestor attributed to the patriotic service was a John Foust, who paid taxes. John Fouts never lived in the location where the taxes were paid. I tried everything I could think of, but I was unable to find any further service records for him. If you check the DAR Patriot Index now, the following information is given:

Future Applicants Must Prove Correct Service The proof of service used to establish this person as a patriot is no longer valid.

Date given for this change is 9/15, which is when I sent in my application.
