Burt-17 and Burt-1857 appear to represent the same person because: Same birth, same parents, same first husband Abigail married 3 times: Ball, Mun and Stebbins. I can find no evidence for her death in 1717 in Deerfield, only 1707 and 1691 in Springfield. Please merge. Thanks.

This person was born 20 years before parents, so there is no way she could have been their daughter, if her birth date is correct. What evidence is there that Judah had a daughter Abigail? If there is none, she should be removed.
