Daughters possible

NOTE: Two of the on-line Handley history books show different numbers of children for William and Margaret Handley. Handly shows they had 8; Mortimeyer,Revesz,Hopkins shows 4. Children listed for John and Grizel by Handly is 2, but by Mortimeyer there are 6. (Thus my confusion...)

John is listed as son of John and Grizel by Handly, but Mortimeyer says Sarah's John is grandson of John & Grizel, through John and Margaret.
