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.
