Sarah (Unknown) Howard, should she be disconnected from her Latham parents?

Although many old and unsourced genealogies and town histories say otherwise, the ''Mayflower Families'' Chilton "Silver book" published in 1997, (p. 12) states specifically that: 

no proof was found to substantiate the claim by Mitchell and by Savage for a daughter Sarah Latham. The daughter Sarah is here replaced by Susanna, based on Williams Latham's suggestion in Bridgewater Corrections and reasoning offered in Mary Chilton's Title to Celebrity.

Is there any more recent research that says otherwise? If not, I think Sarah should be disconnected from the currently-attached Latham parents.

Recently approved MF membership applications continue to use Susannah (not Sarah) as the wife of John Howard/Haward and the mother of these children.  The 1997 Chilton silver book is the most recent edition.
