There is a guy listed in a family tree who lived 1947- 27 March 1962. A newspaper published on the 26th march 1962 says he has been missing since 24th March 1962. Is this the same person? They had the exact same name, Larry Stuart Bill. He was missing at sea. No mention or news report that his body was found. so this Larry S. Bill is a different person even though the Larry S Bill that was reported missing was the same age too?

There's have to be some extenuating circumstance to go from "missing" to "missing and presumed dead". Maybe he went missing after being struck dead and knocked overboard. Maybe the water at that time of year guaranteed a quick death from hypothermia if he wasn't found right away. Maybe there was other clear evidence that precluded the possibility of survival. Interesting little mystery, and probably still solvable if there's enough motivation to uncover the answer, since it wasn't so long ago that everyone around at the time is necessarily dead.

The same, unless some-one has proof of the person's death.

Right, but this Larry had the exact same name and age (and time he died) though so I'd like to be sure.
