This profile originated in a download with flags of "uncertain." It conflicts with the following record: Elizabeth Anderson bap 15 Oct 1699 NYC, father Isaac, mother Prudens Woodard https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V2HY-2P1 . Isaac Anderson was a prominent landowner in Rye, Westchester County, whose 1722 will mentions wife Prudence, more or less proving that the Elizabeth of this baptismal record was a child of Rye, born 1699. It is possible that 1699 Elizabeth died and that her name was recycled for another Elizabeth in 1714; this happened in some families. Multiple sources marry Elizabeth Anderson to Robert Bloomer Jr (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Bloomer-547 ), and there is strong circumstantial evidence for this pairing. Isaac Anderson and son William (Elizabeth's brother) co-signed multiple church records with Robert Bloomer Jr and his father, so the families belonged to the same church (see references in their WikiTree profiles). I submit that this profile for Elizabeth (1) has the wrong date of birth and (2) needs a prior marriage, to Bloomer-547 (he died in 1730) , added before the marriage to Timothy Carpenter. I would appreciate comments!
