I disconnect the parents after finding Hannah's Find a Grave memorial with a picture of her tombstone clearly showing her as a wife to Silas. The correct daughter is already shown so just the incorrect one was disconnected.
Sorry- somehow I deleted the original message and couldn't restore it.

William's daughter Hannah married Silas Phelps (as shown on the attached photo on this profile). If Silas didn't die until 1816 it is unlikely the two Hannah's are the same person.

It may be necessary that Hannah is disconnected from her parents since no records exist that tie the Hannah Dewey who married Allen Breed to the Hannah Dewey who is William's daughter.

Dewey-1204 and Dewey-12 appear to represent the same person because: Because of our differing death years, Dewey-12 didn't pull up as a match when I created a profile for him. I believe 1759 is correct (see https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=pv&GRid=128619651&PIpi=126315440 and https://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/Dewey-Photos-12).
