What we can't be so sure about is which Johannes Marselis is the one Johanna married, since there was one baptized in 1695 and a cousin of the same name baptized in 1698. That's what my answer to you was about.
That's an "of" in the marriage record you cited, not an "or." (1692. Oct. 26. Johannes Beekman, widr. of Maghtelt Schermerhoorn, and Eva Vinhagel, y.d., both of N.A.). Johannes was the widr. (i.e., widower) of Maghtelt Schermerhorn. He married Eva Vinhagel, who was not previously married (that's what y.d. means). "N.A." means New Albany (you can get that from the list of abbreviations for that part the Albany records). I don't know why they called it "New" Albany, since it's the place we call plain old "Albany."
