Two dates/places of death are listed in this merged profile,  Did Sarah die in 1670 in Ipswich, or in 1683 in Boxford?  If she died in 1670, then she cannot be the mother of Sarah Andrews, who was born in 1673.  Can anyone find a source for her death or burial?

Thanks, Frank - I added this record to Sarah's profile and corrected her marriage date.

This record mentions Sarah and Joseph, the bride and groom.  It does not mention Martha, the purported mother

Exactly! Some of the data in this family's profiles is impossible.  I stumbled upon Martha's, with a daughter born 3 years after her death, and the problems continue.
