Hackler-21 and Hackler-3 appear to represent the same person because: Same person

Death dates are wrong for both profiles--should be 3-18-1897. Parents are Peter Hackler & Mackalana Delph/Delp

posted by Nick Andreola Jr
Hackler-33 and Hackler-3 do not represent the same person because: Please read note in the biography--there are two distinct persons with this name.
