A lone assertion over seventy years old for which no supporting evidence has ever been found is not reliable, even if published in the Register. That is not how genealogy is practiced in the twenty-first century. The Five Generations Project of the GSMD does not mention this assertion. This assertion is not mentioned by other recent researchers, including Robert Charles Anderson, FASG, in his sketch of Ezekiel in "The Great Migration Begins." Although Torrey included that Register article in the list of references in his entry for Ezekiel, Torrey also listed no surname for Susanna, not even a possible surname with a question mark.

I can assert that the moon is made of green cheese, but that does not make my assertion worthy of consideration, as a reasonable person, upon examining the evidence, would reject it.

When examining any genealogical assertion one must ask whether it is plausible, and this assertion is not.
