It appears that as many as three different women may have been confounded. According to the current profiles Damen-2 (Lysbeth Janse) was born in 1660, married a Casier/Cazier, and died in or before 1707. Sister profiles showing a birthdate of September 20, 1676 are Damen-19 (Lysbeth Janse) who married Schermerhorn and died in 1743 and Damen-18 (Aeltje Janse) who married Phillips and died in 1707,

In addition to those profiles, which all have the same parents, two other likely matches that don't show parents are Damen-70 (Elizabeth), born September 20, 1676 and died in 1743, and Damen-74 (Aeltie), born in 1668 and died in 1707.
