Likewise, his spouse, Rebecca is buried there too, FAG 9252745.
These are not merely two girls born the same year. Both profiles claim that she was baptized in the New York church on 8 October 1662.

You created the Van Houten profile and you are still the only member who has contributed to it. The only cited source is the Ancestral File at https://www.familysearch.org/search/family-trees/results?q.afnId=G5VJ-FX . The Ancestral File is not a reliable source, there are no sources identified in the entries there, and the only data in those entries is the 8 October 1662 christening date. If you have some other sources or other evidence for Catherine Van Houten, please bring it forward. Without evidence for her, I have to conclude the data in the Ancestral File and on that profile is a mistake.
After looking into the profile of Henry Van Houten that you created as the brother of Catherine van Houten, I am firmly convinced that a contributor to the Ancestry File (whose work was copied by additional Ancestral File contributors) mistakenly identified Tryntie Boelen as a child of Roelof Cornelissen, the progenitor of the van Houten family. Henry van Houten is another person who does not appear in any Van Houten documentation I have consulted, and the baptism record for Hendrick Boelen matches the record cited for Henry van Houten in the WikiTree profile and the Ancestral File. I have already changed the parents on the Henry profile and corrected his LNAB.
See my note at Boelen-174.
Thank you for creating these profiles back in 2011. The Ancestral File was a good starting place for creating genealogy in WikiTree, but we need to recognize that it is not a reliable source and sometimes is seriously erroneous.
More recently, after reviewing some publications about the Van Houten family (and seeing no mention of Catherine or Henry), reviewing the New Amsterdam Dutch Church baptism records for the dates that Catherine and Henry were said to have been baptized, and checking the cited entries in the Ancestral File, it became very clear to me that someone had convinced themselves that the baptized children recorded as children of Boele Roelofszen were in fact the children of Roelof Cornelissen.

Kim Williams and I have been researching Elizabeth Hawes the daughter of Edward and Eliony Hawes (Hawes-342) She can not find Elizabeth mentioned as a daughter of Edward Hawes in a printed book with births in Dedham which she posted a link to on Elizabeth's page. I can not find it in Familysearch.org in a handwritten register of births in Dedham. She is not mentioned in Edward's will, which is transcribed on his person page. In Familysearch someone had given her a birth date in 1656, but John Hawes was born two months before that. We would like to remove Elizabeth from Edward and Eliony's family. I see you are active in Wikitree, and so I thought I would give you a chance to reply before we did it. Perhaps you have information we did not find.
I am new to WikiTree so I am not sure if I am doing things correctly.
I note you added Dorothy Wheatlie as the wife of Thomas Bliss-1. You'll see the note at the top of the profile of Bliss-1 that there were 3 different Thomas Blisses in New England at that time (per AnneB's research) Wheatly- was the wife of Thomas Bliss-709. Will you please make this fix and add Dorothy Wheatlie to the correct husband? Thanks.
I have started a G2G for Teunis and the connection to his correct parents now to make sure everyone is ok with the change of parents. You can find a link to that G2G at his profile.
Thanks for your help and enthusiasm !
And yes Teunis or Anthoni Cornelis van der Poel was one of them, but the problem is, he is from a different family, so he is not the son of Gerrit van der Poel and his wife Cornelia Wynants, but the son of Cornelis Corneliss van der Poel and his wife Neeltgen Hendricks van Tieland.
So we now can connect him to the correct parents if you agree and would like to have this corrected as well of course, if he was a son of Gerrit his patronymic would also have been Gerrits or Gerritsz, but his patronymic was Cornelis or Cornelisz, there are many Notarial deeds for his parents and siblings and the one where he was mentioned (+ his very likely brother in law) is added to his profile and no hurry, so just take your time.
Greets and have a wonderful weekend and thanks for the kind help !
