  • Fact: Sarah Belden LZND-WDB and Sarah Belden KNZ6-1XK are the same person but cannot be merged at this time. Sources on each need to be merged as well. Children need to be check further to make sure the belong since same names were used frequently in related families. All children have been moved to Sarah Belden LZND-WDB. Suggest any additions or changes be made on this individual.

Rachel Darata ( I recommend combining Sarah Belden LZND-WDB with Sarah Dekdubsa MJLZ-1NG who has the same immediate family but a truncated tree. Perhaps this was an indian name for her? Quebec Federation of Genealogical Societies, Family Origins, 1621-1865 shows that Daniel Dekdubsa and Elisabeth Foote had a daughter Sarah in 1680 in Deerfield. I don't understand where "Dekdubsa" came from but the other details match. Only Christopher is listed as her child by familysearch but the christening dates are the same. I have already merged her son and husband with Sarah Belden LZND-WDB's, the only difference was spelling of the name and they were created by family search without connection to any other people.

Belding-301 and Belden-447 appear to represent the same person because: I am proposing the merger of Belding-301 into Belden-447. I found the spelling Belden in: TAG, Vol. 76, No. 2, pp. 122-128, "The English Ancestry of Richard Belden of Wethersfield, CT," by P.C. Reed and J. C. Sharp. The spelling is also used in the "Hickok Genealogy, Ancestry of Charles Nelson Hickok," by C. N. Hickok, 1938.
