Should the parents of Sarah Ludlam, wife of Daniel Bayless, be removed? [closed]

According to the text of both Sarah's biography and that of her husband, Daniel Bayless-108, Sarah was found not to be the daughter of William Ludlam-88. In his Bayles Families of Long Island and New Jersey, in 1944 Howard Green Bayles indicated that she was Sarah Ludlam, daughter of William Ludlam. But in his 1946 supplement to his book, on page 2,  Bayles says she was not Sarah Ludlam, but that she was possibly Sarah Denton, born 1681 at Springfield, Massachusetts. Then he states "No proof whatever."  Another factor to consider: In a TAG article about the Ludlam family, Vol 20, pages 21-24 the children of William Ludlam-88 and his wife Sarah Higby-107 are listed. There is a daughter Sarah Ludlam, but her husband is shown as ____ Jones.

I recommend that we remove Sarah's parents and change her Last Name at Birth to Unknown. Are there any objections?

Under the weight of evidence. Go for it. Unknown- no parents
