Stearns-1057 and Stearns-36 appear to represent the same person because: I'm not sure where Stearns -1057 came into my care. He has no relatives, but shares the same death date as Stearns-36. Please merge them as yours is obviously well documented and it would in effect delete Stearns -1057 Thank you.
