Would like some opinions on Bethiah, a supposed daughter of Edward Adams and Lydia Penniman. [closed]

I recently noticed Bethiah being disconnected from her parents, which made me look at the family again. This profile originally had the birth of 12 Nov 1675 in Medfield, MA, and the death of 12 Mar 1764 in East Haddam, CT. So using the death date & place I found a matching death record in Haddam for Bethia, the wife of [[Ackley-312|Samuel Ackley]]. Then worked backwards to try to locate a marriage record & maiden name for her. Based on Samuel Ackley's profile, as well as my own searches, his wife's LNAB is unknown. (I've added my research notes to her profile). Since the Adams parents have another daughter Bethiah already, I propose to disconnect this [[Adams-5474|Bethiah]], and merge her with [[Unknown-153904|Bethiah Unknown]], who is already Sam's wife, maintaining the LNAB of Unknown. Does this make sense?

Edward and Lydia had at least 2  daughters named Bethia/Bethiah born at Medifield: *see MedfieldVR)

Born: Bethiah, d. Edward and Lidia, Apr. 12, 1671. Died: Bethia, d. Edward and Lidia, Apr. 28, 1671.

Born: Bethia, d. Edward and Lidia, Aug. 18, 1672. Died:  Bethia, d. Edward and Lidia, Sept. 2, 1672.

It seems to make more sense to change the dob and to merge this profile with one of her siblings of the same name?

I guess it's a flip of the coin. Her death date is a match on the profile of Samuel Ackley's wife, her birth date doesn't match anyone I can find.
Bobbie, I change LNAB to unknown as you asked and set up a merge
