Disputed origins:

Margaret French / French-865 could not have been both the mother of Hannah Lamb, born 1633 at Watertown, and the daughter of Thomas French and Susanna Riddlesdale.

Thomas and Susan Riddlesdale had a daughter named Margaret, but their daughter by that name is reported to have died at England in 1635.[1]

This Margaret French was born in the wrong place to the the daughter of Thomas French and Susanna Riddledale. Their daughter Margaret was born in 1620 and died in 1635.

Hearing no objections she will be disconnected.

Propose we sever Margaret French / French-865, (reported mother of Hannah Lamb) from associated parents, Thomas French and Susan Riddlesdale.

Thomas and Susan French had a daughter named Margaret, but she is reported to have died at England in 1635, presumably prior to the time her parents migrated to New England.

French-424 and French-865 are not ready to be merged because: Reading Great Migration report about Edward Lamb. Robert Charles Anderson does not assign a maiden name to her. Suspect we should resolve the conflict in the maiden name (and thus parentage) before we merge.

French-424 and French-865 appear to represent the same person because: Birth years somewhat close, same birthplace, same name, same married name (Lamb) and place of death.
