 1818 - Alternate locations for the same individual.   You can see from my notes that my database could use some cleanup as well.  Looking at place names shows a variety of usage, even when the exact place name is known.  One should try to be consistent in format, such as City, County, State, Country and fill in all fields.  Some software makes this cleanup easier than others, I have found that the MyHeritage Family Tree Builder has a good facility for fixing and arranging consistency in place names.
