Johns-1833 and Johns-124 appear to represent the same person because: Same dates, places of birth and death, same spouse, same parents, same siblings.

Aquilla Johns was removed as the spouse of Margaret Hopkins because there are sources proving his marriage to Mary Hosier and there are none proving a marriage to Margaret Hopkins.
