Towne-1 and Towne-630 appear to represent the same person because: Name, dates, locations, are a match.
Just wanted to let you know there was an approved merge that wasn't completed between this profile and Towne-66. I was going to complete it for you, but realized none of the dates or parent's names matched up, so I cancelled the merge.
