Sweetland-17 and Sweedland-1 appear to represent the same person because: Same name, born same time and place, married same husband on same date, both moved to Nova Scotia. These are duplicate profiles that should be merged. The slight difference in last name is just variant spelling; either can be used. Sweedland is proposed as it is what is shown in available Ancestry records.
