Are They Dependent?

Always contemplate the probable informant on any record or document you obtain. You may have five different documents that indicate Riley Rampley was born in 1835 in Coshocton County, Ohio, but if those different documents all had the same probable informant, you have "different" documents that were all dependent on the same person.

In which case they really may not be as different as you think.
