Ridgely-101 and Ridgley-99 appear to represent the same person because: All dates are the same. Last name spelling is just a variant and changes through history between Ridgeley/Ridgely/Ridgley.

Ridgely-14 and Ridgley-99 appear to represent the same person because: Correct profile is [Ridgley-99]; LNAB is RIDGLEY; both are shown married to Joshua Dorsey [Dorsey-325]. Will need some post-merge cleanup.
