Soileau-426 and Soileau-2 appear to represent the same person because: These are the same person. Soileau-426 is unsourced, the childrens names are different versions. Jacente = Hyacinthe.

Soileau-426 and Soileau-2 do not represent the same person because: The two died on different dates and the two have different named children. the two have the same name but are two different people so I reject the merger on June 10,2018. Carl Callahan

Soileau-2 and Soileau-426 appear to represent the same person because: Same parents and spouse. Only difference is date of death. Thanks
