Is this baptism the correct Teuntje Visser

During the Source-a-thon I was working on Teuntje Visser. I went back to her, to try and find baptism and marriage record. I have not had much luck with the marriage record, but I might have found the baptism. However, I am unsure if it is the correct Teuntje Visser.

I explained the research I did in the Research Notes section on the profile. Considering the unsourced information, the Teuntje Visser that was baptized in 1776 would be the correct one (correct date and parents), however the scant (maybe wrong) information on the birth record does not support the 1776 birth year. Since I have not been able to find any other records yet that would give Teuntje's age or link her to her parents, I am hesitant to just conclude this Teuntje Visser is the same Teuntje Visser that married Geerit onder de Linde. But maybe I'm just being too cautious.

Can someone else take a look and add their two cents on the matter?

Edited to add:

Thanks to the replies to this post and some private messages, I've managed to further the mystery a bit. I have collated all of the evidence so far into the research notes of the profile.

I do not have the time to do the full reconstruction needed to solve this case, and until it is done, I do not want to unlink the parents. But all of the information is in the profile for those who do want to take this case further.

A partial answer. I found the marriage on familysearch.

Another partial, with a twist (and a turn to 1782).

In the 1782 baptism the one above is Wouter, son of Leendert Visser and Arendje de Blom, both 3. march.

Exploring the possibility of an error in the registration I found a birth march 4, 1812, Jannetje, father Wouter Arijz Gijze aged 30. A perfect fit if the names in the register of baptisms were exchanged. Looks far-fetched but saves the day. https://www.wiewaswie.nl/nl/detail/22901882

Couldn't find Wouter's death.

I'm not quite sure I can follow your thinking here. The Wouter, son of Leendert Visser and Arendje de Blom, being exchanged with the Teuntje below I could get. But hot does the Jannetje from 1812 fit in?
Her father Wouter Arijz Gijze fits perfectly with the Wouter that was baptized as Teuntje, thus providing proof of the other half of the exchange. Teuntje Gijze would have been 30 on the fourth of march 1812. (birth of Jannetje: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HY-611C-4V?cc=1576401&wc=9PG5-C68%3A112007601%2C112007602).

I mentioned her only to complete the proof, covering both sides of the exchange.

A child with the name Teuntje was baptized on 11-06-1769 in Middelharnis. Her parents were Leendert Bastiaanz Visser and Arentje Jans de Blomme.

If she is the right teuntje then we can explain the childeren.

First child was named after fathers father. Second child was named after mothers mother. Third child could be named after fathers brother. (I didn't found more children)

It is a pity that the witnesses are familymembers of the father.

The age of death cann't be correct because the informer wasn't a direct familymember.  

just a penny of my thought!
