Why has Elizabeth Muscoe not been removed as a mother for A. Garnett?

Why has Elizabeth Muscoe not been removed as Anthony Garnetts mother. I think we all have more than enough insight into this to prove she is not his mother. We have no idea if Anthony was born in 1700 or 1709, this is a nine year age gap and not to mention his other siblings being born almost a decade later. So why is the narrative that he is her son still popular? Also he wasn’t even mentioned in the will and yet there still seems to be no definitive answer as to how he could possibly be her child. At the same time does anyone have a DNA test that can actually prove a direct descent, cause if that’s the case, wouldn’t Italian DNA be present in the test?

Are any of the other children listed as hers actally hers?
Yes the others should be accurate, but Anthony is not. There is a possibility that Joyce and one other one, I can't remember which that may not be hers either. We seem to forget that Thomas had two brothers, James and John, both of which had children, but their descendants are almost always blank so it's very likely that not all of the children are from Thomas and Elizabeth. Thomas' will is provided on his page here on wikitree and it lists the children on the will.

I’m not allowed to edit any of the pre-1700 profiles. I agree that a different Elizabeth is the mother of Anthony.  I also believe the birth dates shown for Elizabeth Muscoe and her purported children are incorrect.

Thank you Linda I appreciate your response! I just don’t see how people can still defend this idea that Muscoe is Anthony’s mother. I mean if he was a child why wouldn’t the estate go to him, it just goes straight to John after she dies. I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels this way.
