Is Jeremiah Dubois b. 1721, Kingtown, Ulster, NY not the son of Mattheus Dubois?

+8 votes
I have Jeremiah Dubois, b. 18 May 1721, Kingstown, Ulster, NY, d. 12 May 1796, Beckham, Dutchess, NY, as the son of Mattheus Dubois. Is this incorrect and if so then do you know who Jeremiah's parents were?

Jeremiah was married to Rachel Viele 28 Jan 1741, NY. They had nine children.

Any help is appreciated.

What is the source of your information?

Jeremiah's profile is

The Kingston Dutch Church baptism and marriage records are online -- and free -- at a number of websites. See Space:Baptismal and Marriage Registers of the Old Dutch Church of Kingston, Ulster County, New York  for some places where they can be found. You likely will find Jeremiah's baptism on 18 May 1721, with names of his parents and the witnesses.

Various online trees. I started doing genealogy 33 years ago and am now going back and verifying all my lines. I was surprised to see this Wiki tree not having Jeremiah as the son of Mattheus and Sarah when every Dubois tree I've looked at had him listed. Just want to make sure I had it correct.
Thanks so much for the link. Was able to pull up the book on Google books and download it for free. And yes it does verify Jeremiah's parents as Mattheus and Sarah.
He can not be added to Matthew's line unless there is proof. Online trees are frequently inaccurate.

I am aware, but Space:Baptismal and Marriage Registers of the Old Dutch Church of Kingston, Ulster County, New York listed above shows the record for Jeremiah's baptism and lists Mattheus and Sarah as his parents.

Then you have to contact the New Netherlands Project leaders. Not one of the profile managers,- the Project - since Matthew is PPP
I'm not adding to any Wiki tree. I'm verifying information I already had on my own personal tree. I don't need anyone's permission to do that.
I'm one of the Project Coordinators. The project wants to see information based on records -- not copied from unsourced pedigrees.  NNS relies heavily on church records to determine LNAB and identify parents. When you have solid citations on the profile to baptism records that name the parents, please make the connection to the parents.
Not sure what you all are going on about. I asked to verify Jeremiah's parents because I saw that he was not listed as Mattheus and Sarah's son on this particular Wiki Tree. Someone gave me a link to a book listing the church records for Mattheus and Sarah's children. After going to Google Books and pulling up the title up I was able to download the book. Jeremiah's baptismal record was there. I'm not adding to any project, Wiki Tree or the like. I was verifying for MY OWN family tree.
