Allen-11013 and Allen-4202 appear to represent the same person because: Same birth, death, two wives

Narrative on profile of now associated wife, Abigail Williams, suggests she is daughter of Joseph Williams and Sarah Browning. Joseph and Sarah were of Salem and reportedly had a daughter named Abigail. What are the historical records to suggest this Abigail of Salem married to a but what records suggest this Abigail married to a Samuel Allen of Sudbury?

In the alternative, may we sever the wife "Abigail Williams" from the profile of this Samuel Allen and deal with her profile separately?

Of the various marriage for men Samuel Allen/Samuel Allin reported in Torrey, only one had wife Abigail Williams. He was of Manchester and they married Marblehead, 17 March 1686/7.

Torrey has a couple of marriages for men Samuel of Sudbury. Samuel d. 1705 there with first wife "Jane Ross"; marriage 4 Jan 1683. Another Samuel (who has second wife Lydia Hastings) m. Elizabeth Grout 22 Dec 1693.

Improving the identification of this Samuel Allen would help to better identify the wife.
