If I may jump in here...  At IGHR last year Lloyd DeWitt Bockstruck mentioned in his Intermediate Genealogy class that, in an area with two men of the same name, the elder would be called "Sr." while the younger would be referred to as "Jr."  As previously mentioned, they were not necessarily father and son.  In fact, there may be no relationship at all.
