If Moses was born in 1707, his mother has to have been Sarah (Tenney) Tenney, not the Sarah Taft who married a man named Thomas Tenney in 1720.

Accordingly, I swapped out the mother on this profile.

Tenney-512 and Tenney-491 appear to represent the same person because: Everything matches except the mother.

LATER: And now the mothers match. I determined that Sarah Taft couldn't be this man's mother, so I swapped out the mother.
