Moler-86 and Mohler-145 appear to represent the same person because: Clear duplicates.

So... now in researching the markers a little bit, I stumbled upon a duplicate for Johann, w/some contradictions. Sigh. I love merging obvious duplicates, but it's those pesky contradictions that make me weary. Not to worry, everything will be OK. It always is!

In addition (regarding the comment below) both markers appear to contradict the profile's information regarding the month of his death (JAN, not JUNE), & to contradict each other regarding the year he emigrated from Europe (1st one says 1730, 2nd 1728.) Just saying. I guess that's enough to change the month of his death, (just did that), but I don't have a clue how to figure which emigration/immigration year is correct,. Hopefully somebody does? Also, the source box has the arrival year as 1730.

This is a new 1 for me, but I found 2 markers for Ludwig. There's this gravestone (the 1st one put on the page) naming him & his wife, & then there's 1 that appears to be a memorial marker w/his statistics, but also when (1728) & from whence ( Glasgow) he emigrated.

Forgiving, please, my inability to figure it out, & the use of a made up way to write what I can't read, it says, "LUDWIG MOHLER/ VONDER SCHWEITZ/ KAMMIT FAMILIE<can't make it out...>/SCHIFF THISTLE VON<?>/GLASGOW AM 29 AUG<?i think>/1728 IN AMERICA <?>/ WURDE<ger?> APRIL 4/1696 <?tare?> JAN 6/ 1754 LT<?> 57 JAHRS <?>/MO 27 <?>

I also can't figure out where the marker is located, especially in relation to the gravestone, but by putting it on the page I'm hopeful a better-educated genealogist can fill in the gaps
