Seaton-372 and Gordon-614 appear to represent the same person because: Dates of birth and death are within reason, spouse is the same. I suspect the LNAB of Seaton should actually be SETON, but Gordon is the better known LNAB of the two. I manage the Gordon and Seton Clans for the Scottish Clan Project on Wikitree.

Gordon-5370 and Gordon-614 are not ready to be merged because: These are the same person however Gordon-614 does not contain the son Patrick. Patrick should be kept. I have the proof that he is a son of George.
