New Netherland settler to merge: Frans Rombouts-1 [closed]

+8 votes

Frans Rombouts, of Hasselt, Leige (grey area) has a duplicate that needs to be merged:

These are believed to be the same person because he didn't have a male heir and the duplicate is currently attached to his step-daughter-in-law, the wife of his step-son Cornelis Bogardus.

His current LNAB is the name that first appears in church records for him which is what the New Netherland Settlers project uses for the LNAB. It is said that his baptism record has been located but hasn't been added to Wikitree.

Are there any issues or concerns? If not, I'll merge the duplicate into Rombouts-1 in 30 days.

Catharyna was known locally as "Madame Brett". A tablet was placed inside the church as a memorial for her as she is buried beneath the pulpit of the First Reformed Dutch Church of Fishkill. The sanctuary was enlarged between 1785 and 1795 when it encroached on the Brett family lot. The markers were moved, but not the interees. Her father is Francis Rombout. Her husband, Lieutenant Roger Brett, R. N., did not survive her.
