Yes, it does appear that these two are indeed the same person. I have found that the spelling of Ludington with one "d" is what was used by the Ludingtons that moved from Connecticut to NY after the American Revolution. I am not sure how it was spelled back in 1700, nor does it really matter. There were multiple spellings of most names. I just know that I have spelled it that way in my tree. The Ludingtons were iron workers that owned a foundry. They originally came from Yorkshire I think, a historically known area of metal working. My end of the family emigrated to NY and worked on Canal construction and eventually became boatmen on the Delaware and Hudson Canal. So that is my end of the Ludington family that I have discovered. Thank you for the merge request.
Thank you Ms Kay for identifying this duplication. I am still trying to learn all the right things to do when posting a new person. Your sharp eye is appreciated. Thanks again and hope you have an awesome weekend.
