Pitre-2557 and Pitre-62 appear to represent the same person because: Pitre-2557 is a conflation of Pitre-62 (same parents) and Pitre-230 (same birth year and parents have similar names but are not the same). Eight children have been found for these parents and only one Marguerite has been documented. Please merge.
