Marriott-1277 and Marriott-962 appear to represent the same person because: Sophia is listed by her middle name in the 1870 Census, and the birth year given is off by a few years. Based on her name on her death record -- Sophia Ellen Christensen -- it appears that they are the same person and should be merged.
