Do I add Daniel Johnson to assumed parents with no proof?

Everything in me tells me that Elijah Johnson and Susannah Martin are the parents of Daniel including DNA matches, but I have literally no proof that I am correct.  Do I dare attach him to them without proof? I have Dna matches that lead to this area over and over. I just know I'm right...or somewhere in the vacinity, but have been afraid to attach him for fear of finding out that I'm wrong.

WikiTree allows for the attachment to uncertain parents, and they should be marked as uncertain:

You should write up your entire argument, including the DNA evidence, and post it on his profile, perhaps in research notes.  If you want to see my own example, please send me a private message.
