Same Unusual Names May Not Be the Same Man

Just because two individuals are born in the same place with the same unusual name combination, do not conclude that they are one and the same. There were at least two Andrew Trautvetters born in the early 19th century in Saxeweimar, Germany, who served in the United States military. Don’t assume based on name alone that two individuals are one and the same.

Posts about Andrew (the younger) and Andrew (the older) are on my Rootdig blog.
