What's in a Name? Trouble!

Genealogist Ron Arons will use the Genealogical Proof Standard to show how identities can be merged and separated. For example, five individuals, all with the same name, and all living in the same place where one of the individuals lived or claimed to live, all found trouble, either in business or with women. Is this possible? If so, how? A fun set of stories about multiple unrelated men who just happened to share the same name and fate (trouble).
