Biography

No records found in Connecticut. Bob Keniston 16:27, 24 October 2015 (EDT)

The FAG record is a mess. She is not the daughter of Thomas Sherwood of Stratford, nor is she the daughter of Thomas Sherwood of Fairfield. Neither one of them married an Alice Seabrook. Thomas of Fairfield married Sarah Seabrook, and Thomas of Stratford married Alice Tiler. her name should be changed to Elizabeth Unknown if you have records that she even existed.

NOTE: There is no evidence that Thomas Sherwood had a daughter Elizabeth in the parish records, his will, his wife's will, or estate records.[1]

There is a possibility that she is a dup to Elizabeth (Unknown) Thompson Finch

Yes, another old error. Thomas Merritt married Jane Unknown, not Jane Sherwood. See the profile of Thomas Sherwood of Fairfield. The profile of Thomas Merritt is shown married to Jane Unknown but repeats many errors in the biography.

According to Torrey, Thomas Merritt married Jane Sherwood rather than Elizabeth Sherwood. Are there sources showing Elizabeth married him?

Sherwood-1229 and Sherwood-87 appear to represent the same person because: There isn't much on Sherwood-1229. This might be as good a location as any to place her, even if the particulars don't all match well. With no sources, it's hard to know what to do with her. The only parents offered up didn't have Elizabeth as a child, so who knows? Where else might she belong?

Sherwood-1229 and Sherwood-87 are not ready to be merged because: Best not very good option for what to do with Sherwood-1229. She isn't the daughter of Thomas & Alice (Tiler) Sherwood according to work which has gone on before.

Sherwood-1229 and Sherwood-87 appear to represent the same person because: There is not much available on Sherwood-1229. This seems a reasonable disposition of the unsourced profile.

What to do with this profile? Likely not daughter of Thomas & Alice (Tiler) Sherwood. But then, who is she? Where does she go? Unsourced, no real information at all.

Sherwood-1185 and Sherwood-87 appear to represent the same person because: Obviously the same person, they need to be merged and sources investigated. This Elizabeth may well have been married at some point to a John Tomson. but the one shown is not correct and needs to be removed as husband.

Thank you, Dan

Sherwood-1400 and Sherwood-87 appear to represent the same person because: Other than the difference in birthplace, these two profiles match.
