There's a history of profile notes expressing consternation that a profile for Ariaantjen Osterhout (spelling may vary) of Kingston, New York, or thereabouts, has the wrong dates or the wrong husband.
I believe I've figured out the problem. There were three women of this name, very close together in age.
The three baptisms are:
- Aryaantie, daughter of Teunis Oosterhout and Aryaantie Roos, baptized 29 September 1706
- Ariaantjen, daughter of Pieter Jans Oosterhoud and Heyltjen Schut, baptized 3 February 1712
- Ariaantjen, daughter of Gysbert Oosterhout and Marretjen Bogaart,baptized 9 March 1712
Their three marriages are:
- Harmen Roosekrans and Ariaantjen Oosterhout, 29 April 1725
- Jan de Wit and Ariaantjen Oosterhoud, 26 September 1731.
- Jonathan DuBois and Ariaantjen Oosterhout, 16 August 1732
I think Ariaantjen #1 is the only one who was old enough to marry in 1725, so she is marriage #1. This woman is represented by https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Oosterhout-12. The husband is currently also assigned to Osterhout-62, but she (Osterhout-62) was too young.
If the keepers of the records at Kingston made an attempt to use slightly different spellings to distinguish the two girls baptized in 1712, then Ariaantjen #2 is (spelled Oosterhoud at baptism, profile Oosterhoudt-3) is the same one who married Jan de Wit in 1731 (marriage #2), but I haven't researched these families to determine whether other sources (such as wills) and other available biographical details (such as place names in the marriage record, names of witnesses at their children's baptisms) support that. What do the profile managers know about this?
By the same logic used for Ariaantjen #2, I'm guessing that Ariaantjen #3 is the one who married Jan de Wit Jonathan Du Bois in 1732. She's represented by https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Osterhout-62 (which profile currently has Rosekrans as spouse) and Osterhoudt-3 (which has de Wit as spouse). What do the profile managers know about this?
