I don't think different parents necessarily means that they are different people - it just means that one profile (or both) is connected to the wrong parents. Everything else seems to indicate that they are the same person - same birth and death dates and places, same wife, and the children listed on this profile are included on the list of children in the biography of the other profile.

I'm not sure what you mean by "Isaac Thompson that I entered was directly from the line of heritage", but I don't see any sources on either profile for who his parents are. I feel like the issue of who his parents are should be resolved and then the two profiles merged.

Thompson-17593 and Thompson-14 appear to represent the same person because: Both have the same vitae, linked / married to same spouse
