Martin-75145 and Martin-104 appear to represent the same person because: Date of birth is estimated to before 1763 according to Island Register source. Same spouse, same son Simon.

I removed the parents who add been added some time ago after the initial creation. The father was dead before this man was born. Searching for his real parents. See "Changes" tab for more details. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Stephen White says Barthelemy Martin died before the census of 1761, therefore this man is not his son OR his birth date is wrong. It is also incorrect on the source cited.
