Hi! I was working on a MatchBot-proposed merge that had received default approval. The merge of the husband's duplicate profiles was correct, but MatchBot found them after several bad merges had been mostly straightened out. In trying to determine whether John Updyke's wife was Sarah Brown or Sarah Carker, I've come to the conclusion that the testimony of a descendant is the best source & that John married Sarah Brown, daughter of Sarah who married a Brown & a Carker. So the profiles that appear to be duplicates for John's wife Sarah may have started as profiles for John's wife Sarah Brown and her mother who had married both a Brown and a Carker.

I think I'd rather set them as mother/daughter, even though evidence found so far would indicate the maiden name of Sarah Brown's mother was Unknown, not Carker. Any objections? Any additional sources? (See [[Carker-1]] for what I've found so far.)

Thanks!

P.S. I used up my tags on names, so I chose the Quakers for the 6th tag (instead of New Netherland or Southern Colonies tags) because John's first wife's family were Quakers (Farnsworths, according to the main source for John - The Op Dyck genealogy, containing the Opdyck--Opdycke--Updyke--Updike American descendents of the Wesel and Holland families). John, of New Jersey, moved to Loudoun county, Virginia, where he and Sarah (of Pennsylvania) raised a family & he (with his sons both by Sarah Farnsworth & his second wife Sarah) founded the "Virginia Updikes".

See more in the Op Dyck reference (and this page, with the descendant's quote that Sarah's mother had married a Brown and a Carker). See also Sarah Carker-1

no objections to proposal to set them as mother/daughter, so that has been done.
