Research notes

Found multiple dates and places of birth. Until further research choosing for 1640 New Netherlands (could be that this is a different Hendrickje named after a previous child died young, but the same husband applied for all three profiles and the there were two different places of birth in the Netherlands proper).

Howdy! I was pointing it at merging into Cornelis as the LNAB because there's no record of her using van Ness, which means she may not have taken it as her surname. There is no doubt that she was a "Cornelis". That's what makes the New Netherland profiles so fun. :D

Cornelis-345 and Van Ness-238 appear to represent the same person because: from the discussion it looks like Van Ness should be the LNAB

Added a match for review as they have different parents. She is the daughter of Cornelis van Ness and Maycke Hendricks. She is discussed in her father's estate https://archive.org/stream/calendarofwillso02fern#page/442/mode/2up I couldn't find record of her using van Ness so the other profile's LNAB was changed to her patronymic, as she is called in the estate record.

The parents on the profile are incorrect per Brogan, Hugh and Charles Mosley, American Presidential Families, New York: Macmillan Publishing Company (1993), 315.

Van Ness-73 and Van Ness-60 appear to represent the same person because: Let's merge this girl away. There is no evidence in any of these profiles that she ever existed as an earlier infant of the same name, with no death date, and only an about birth date, no christening. The endless propagation of these multiple phantom persons from Ancestry and the Ancestral File just clutters up WikiTree with needless individuals who never existed and will never be proven. So let's not contribute to the clutter. Please merge. I saved data to the bios for later study. Thanks!
