1626 - Another infant death.  Was he born somewhere and then taken home where he died?  Or was there an error in one or both records?

1741 - Which one is right?  I don't know.  As it's one of my far-off-to-the-side lines, I haven't researched this one much yet.  Apparently one of these entries is an Alternate Birth record, but which one?
