Pierson-1 and Pierson-150 appear to represent the same person because: Same birth date/place, same death date/place.

Pierson-905 and Pierson-1 do not represent the same person because: Different name, different dates, different wife.

Different name, different dates, different wife. Valid merge is between Pierson-905, and |Peirson_or_Pierson-1 which is yours. Please approve.
posted by John Miller Jr.
Doug, there is some confusion here. Pierson-1 is not the profile for your Henry Pierson. Peirson_or_Pierson-1 is your profile for Henry. John needs you to state your approval for the merge specifically between Peirson_or_Pierson-1 and Pierson-905. Hope that helps...
