The Birth Date is a rough estimate. See the text for details.



According to Howard Green Bayles, Sarah ____, the wife of Daniel Bayles, died in March 1751, and Daniel remarried 8 months later in November 1751.[1] On page 2 of Bayles' 1946 supplement to his 1944 book he stated that John Bayles' wife Sarah was not Sarah Ludlum, but was possibly Sarah Denton who was born in November 1681 at Springfield, Massachusetts.

Sarah's 1685 birth year is an estimate based on her husband's 1683 birth year.

William Ludlam and Sarah Higby are not her parents. They were just added back, and I've removed them again.
posted by Kay (Johnson) Wilson
Because Sarah had been connected to the wrong parents (William Ludlam and Sarah Higby), it appeared that a merge was appropriate. Sarah Ludlum-111 was a different person, so I rejected the merge.

Sarah Ludlam-89, Ludlam-113, and Ludlam-111 have same father, spouse, etc so need to merge

Ludlam-113 and Ludlam-89 appear to represent the same person because: CLEAR DUPLICATE PLEASE MERGE
posted by Karen Neuvirth
Ludlam-113 and Ludlam-89 are not ready to be merged because: death dates do not match
Ludlam-113 and Ludlam-89 appear to represent the same person because: Needs Merged please same person
