Inman-1723 and Inman-10 appear to represent the same person because: Same birth, death dates. Same parents.

I think that you may have transposed dates of birth and death from the son Abraham to the father Willoughby. Willoughby was born 1813, died 1891, married Mary Ann Steely in 1835, and Elizabeth Smith in 1839. His son Abraham was born 1842. His parents were Elisha Inman born 1777 and Morning Sanders born 1785.
