Walton-5175 and Walton-6 appear to represent the same person because: Jay,

I inadvertently created and Unknown Walton for my fifth Great Grandfather Silas Walton (Walton-5170). I found your record for Mary Walton Bond (Walton-5) and was able to merger her into my record for Unknown.

But I saw that you also had her father Thomas Walton, so I filled in his data knowing that we would need to merge them.

So, forgive the newbie, but I'd like to propose that we merge my Thomas Walton into your Thomas Walton.

Best regards,

Thomas "Biff" Walton Johnson
