Sherwood-1601 and Sherwood-42 appear to represent the same person because: Same approx. birth date, same death date in same location, came person, but different husbands--because she married both of them. First, Daniel Fitch as documented in -42, then after his death Joseph Bradford, as documented in -1601 and mentioned in -42. So we need to merge, carefully, retaining both husbands, their children, and both sets of sources.
