Hi Randy! Just so you know; dit or dite names are never included in the surname on WikiTree.

Henry dit Robert-9 and Henry-4 appear to represent the same person because: same name, same parents, birth within 1 year, same death. Henry_dit_Robert-9 should be merged into Henry-4 because Henry is the correct LNAB.
