I think Dingenis Lavo(o)ij who (widower) married Maatje Brouwer and had children Jacob Marinis and Elizabeth with her is the same person as this Dennis Lafoy: "New York State Census, 1855," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K6SY-8SG : 13 March 2018), Dennis Lafoy, E.D. 1, Avon, Livingston, New York, United States; citing p. , line #31, family #71, county clerk offices, New York; FHL microfilm 510,541.

This Dingenis indeed has the two profiles on Familysearch referred to in the question.

Please note:

Both have 22 Aug 1802 as DoB, but that actually was the date of baptism. He was born 19 Aug 1802:

"Netherlands, Zeeland Province, Church Records, 1527-1907," images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-99QJ-S84M?cc=2036997&wc=MCLG-627%3A345031601%2C345105001%2C345129001 : 22 May 2014), Nederlands Hervormd > 's-Gravenpolder > Dopen 1753-1810 Overlijden 1806-1811 > image 53 of 103; Nederlands Rijksarchiefdienst, Den Haag (Netherlands National Archives, The Hague).

Also, https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/details/L8T6-FP6 has marriage data as 1835 to Maria Brouwer. Should be 12 Dec 1833 to Maatje Brouwer.

They look pretty the same. But without good reliable sources we can not tell.

I do not have time now to check things out. I will try to make some time next days.
