Duer-54 and Howes-23 do not represent the same person because: Not similar in any way.

Duer-54 and Howes-23 appear to represent the same person because: George W Duer was my great-grandfather. Also the pictures that person posted for 54 are originally from me since I have those pictures.. Most likely person found these pictures from my ancestry account.
