Thanks for clearing this up. I have made the necessary changes. Heese & Lombard had confused the two John Youngers, but their difference is shown in

Younger-1146 and Younger-948 do not represent the same person because: I had initially approved this merge, but it is my opinion that there is a mistake somewhere. According to interviews with my late grandmother, Maria Magdalena (Maxi) O'Brien my records show that Geertruida is the daughter of John Younger born 25 May 1807, Glascow Scotland, NOT John Younger born 5 May 1793 in Rotherhithe, Southwark, London, England, United Kingdom

Younger-1146 and Younger-948 appear to represent the same person because: Even though the year of death is different, they have the same name, the same husband. Research would need to be done to determine correct date of death. Otherwise, I believe they are the same person
