Hunt-15319 and Hunt-14966 appear to represent the same person because: Same birth day/place/parents, same wife, clearly the same man, so please merge them. Death date on -14966 is supported by its source, not so for -15319. Please retain the more extensive sourcing and text on -14966, but do keep connection to daughter Anna from -15319.
