Person Accounts and API

We have built a connection to our proprietary system, and we are also using Marketo. We have the Person Account feature active as well. I was wondering, when dealing with SF API, is the Person Account field Mailing Address the same field (aka provide the same information) as the Contact field Mailing Address on a person account record. Is that even how Person Accounts work?

Yes, the Account mailing field is the Contact Mailing field. To better understand how Person Accounts work, I would suggest you read the list of SFDC components altered by the Person Accounts feature: https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewHelpDoc?id=account_person_behavior.htm&language=en .
