Jo, your list looks a summary extracted from another website. That's not sufficient basis for us to start creating profiles. I note in particular that "John Storm Becker" is a modern name that would have been found in 1696 New Netherland.

The biography section of this profile includes baptism records for 6 children of Johannes and Anna. Not all of them have profiles yet -- or possibly profiles have been created, likely with variant names, that aren't yet connected to the parents.

Thank you Ellen. I have deleted my post since it has possible misinformation in it.
