The note says do not merge with Hopkins-7 but it doesn't say why. Stephen Hopkins and Elizabeth Fisher had two daughters named Damaris. The first died in 1627 at the age of 9 (Hopkins-7). A sister was born in 1628 and she was named Damaris too (Hopkins 11).
Hopkins-4397 and Hopkins-11 appear to represent the same person because: If you check the children of Stephen and Elizabeth, you will see that there is already another Damaris pair, proposed for merged. This proposed merge would mean that there would be only 2 daughters of Stephen and Elizabeth named Damaris, not 4. Please merge and adjust dates, if necessary. Thanks.
Hopkins-4397 and Hopkins-11 do not represent the same person because: There were two Damaris Hopkins according to most documentation. After the first one died, a second daughter was born and given the name Damaris. Should not be merged.
