Harrington-432 and Neale-684 appear to represent the same person because: Thomas Bell was married only once. His wife's given name was Mary. Surname is subject of disagreement. It appears Neale is correct based on available documentation. Only rationale for believing Harrington is correct is the fact T Bell was granted land adjoining Edward Harrington. This is not proof of a marriage. These profiles should be merged into Neale-684.
