Never Assume There Cannot Be Two

No matter how unusual or "odd" the name, do not immediately conclude that people of the same name appearing in different records must be the same person. It's always possible there were contemporaries with the same name.

They may share a common ancestor or they may not.

But use more than "name uniqueness" to determine they are one and the same.
