Merge Notice

In accordance to the following correspondence with Ronel Olivier, I have decided to make some changes (Van der Walt-440 12:25, 26 January 2016 (EST)) - disconnecting the spouse Pierre (Taillefert-9) from Maria Madeleine (Marais-147) as well as the two "daughters" Susanna (Taillefer-127) and Marie (Taillefer-171)".
"1) Maria (Marais-253). - Dogter van Claude (Marais-159) en Marie (Avice-2). Haar geboorte datum word aangetoon as 1692. Sterf 1766. Sy word aan die Kaap de Goede Hoop gebore volgens Delia. Sy trou in 1712 met Pierre Taillefert en in 1734 met Pieter Hoogens (Boiens-1 ?) van Blokziel.
2) Maria Madeleine (Marais-147). - Dogter van Charles Marais (Marais-55) en Catherine Taboureux (Taboureux-1). Haar geboorte word aangetoon 1682 in Le Plessis-Marlé Hurepoix, Ile-de-France, France volgens Delia. Sy sterf in 1716. Haar huwelik met Estiene Niel (Niel-8) vind plaas in 1700.
Hier word sy aangetoon as die dogter van Charles Marais en Catherine Taboureux, born 1673 (wat opsigself die vraag laat ontstaan of Maria Marai * 1682 en Maria Marais * 1673 dieselfde persoon is). Sy word ook aangetoon as getroud met Pierre Taillefert asook Estiene Niel (Wat volgens my 'n fout is). Soos ek bo aangetoon het by [1) Maria Marais] was die vrou van Pierre Taillefert die dogter van Claude Marais en Marie Avice
As ek duiwels advokaat speel.... Was Maria Marais * 1673 met beide Pierre Taillefert asook Estiene Niel getroud? Ek kan nie die moontlikheid daarvan insien nie. As ek na die datums kyk *1673 + 1716 x 1700 Estiene Niel + 1738 xx 1712 Pierre Taillefert (haar vorige man leef dus nog in 1712 en daar is geen egskeiding genoteer). Verder word daar ook twee kinders aan die Marie-Madeleine Madeleine Tailefer formerly Marais (Marais-147) toegedig naamlik Susanna (Taillefer-127) geen datum en Marie (Taillefer-171) * 1712.
Ons het die volgend opsies - die profiel ( is by die regte ouers en een van die eggenote is korrek. (Niel) Die * datum kan nie met sekerheid bevestig word nie. Ek is geneig om my by Delia te skaar, maar ek gaan my nie daaroor uitlaat nie. In elk geval moet sy van die tweede eggenote (Tailefert) verwyder word, volgens my. Die twee Taillefert kinders sal dan ook verwyder word."
