I believe they are the same individual. He was married to both ladies. However, I do not want to merge them as I believe stongly that the parents are Robert Rayment and Joanne Crocker and do not want to merge the wrongparents. I also have Rayment-77.
Raymond-1337 and Rayment-77 appear to represent the same person because: Clear duplicates. The name was originally Rayment and changed to Raymond. This is reflected in the profile of Rayment-77
