Henry dit Robert-2 and Henry-11 appear to represent the same person because: similar birth (within a year), same parents. Francois, the 11 year old son of Robert Henry found in the 1693 census at Les Mines, was actually his son Jean. Henry_dit_Robert-2 should be merged into Henry-11 because Henry is the correct LNAB. (See White's DGFA p. 841.)
Henry dit Levieux-1 and Henry-11 appear to represent the same person because: same dit name, birth date within 1 year, same death date and place, same parents. Henry dit Levieux-1 should be merged into Henry-11 because Henry is the correct LNAB.
