Which Micah Thayer was Sarah Emerson married to?

I'm trying to resolve this duplicate husbands, but I'm having some difficulty. From what I gather some of the early compiled genealogies on the Thayer name has some mistakes.  It looks like the Thayer Association has published some well researched genealogies, but I don't have access to them.

This may involve more than just determining the correct Micah Thayer, but also confirming the lines of both Micah's.

Thank you for any help!

That is one of the sources that is considered to be somewhat error prone.  But thank you for looking!

Thank you Lin!  Does that book have anything on Micah Thayer, s/o Ebenezer Thayer & Mary Wheelock?
I will check tonight about the other Micah. I have the books but the information I posted was from my late father's database. He maintained a database of New England Thayers and spent the last several years traveling around New England trying to verify as much as he could. He volunteered at the New Hampshire archives and lived in Concord, so his NH records are particularly helpful. The one thing I asked for from his estate was that database (I'm sure my brother would have given it to me in any case even if I hadn't asked).
That line would be in book 3 which my father does not have (he had vol 1, 2 and 4) nor does he give a son Micah to Ebenezer & Mary Wheellock. If someone had LDS or FHL access, you can see if there is something in V.3. https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/642765?availability=Family%20History%20Library

Dad's database has:

Micah b. 1723 Braintree, s/o John Thayer and Rebecca French; m.Mehitable French

Micah, b. 1724 Braintree, s/o Richard Thayer and Susannah White; no wife identified.

Micah, b. 1726 Taunton as previously noted

Micah, b. 1730 Braintree, s/o Ezekiel Thayer & Mehitable White; so wife given

Micah, b. 1741 Bellingham; s/o Jonathan Thayer & Elizabeth Sampson; m. Lois Thayer

and others born later
Thank you.  I found one source that said that they "maybe" had a Micah, so that maybe how that came into play.  I really appreciate all your help.
