Spencer-3904 and Robinson-4393 do not represent the same person because: I've rejected the merge of Spencer-3904 and Robinson-4393 because although Ann Spencer is perhaps mythological, her existence in all forms of Rector genealogy persists. Instead, this profile will be updated to exist in the Disproven Existence project so that others do not create new profiles for Ann Spencer.

Robinson-4393 and Robinson-9891 appear to represent the same person because: There is some debate about whether Henry Rector's wife was named Ann Nancy or Nancy Anne
