There are a number of profiles added as children to Daniel and Sarah, that are not mentioned in the will. This may very well be the case, but let's keep in mind that Daniel may have had siblings and these may be only nieces and nephews. We may never know. It would be appropriate to put disclaimers at least if anyone deems these as 'best fit' instead of sourced.
