[This profile is under investigation ] Quick-803 21:36, 28 September 2014 (EDT)

There was nothing in the profile's original biography to support marriage to Hendrick Cornelius Cortright (both Cortright-4 and Cortright-50), yet the profile was linked to this man as husband. This may be traced back to a faulty GEDCOM.

There are two Jannetje Ennis'es (Ennis-3 and Ennis80 (this Jannetje)) that may have married Hendrick.

Baptism of Hendrick Cornelius Cortright's child Daniel shows this Jannetj's parents, Cornelia Viervant and her husband Lenmar Brink, as sponsor/witnesses. While this suggests that this Janetje (Ennis-80) married Hendrick., not Jannetjen (Ennis-3) Quick-803 22:54, 28 September 2014 (EDT)], It should be noted that the Lenmar Brink and Cornelia appear to have been neighbors in Marbletown and later at Minnisink. There was a relationship between the families.

The following material does not directly support Janetje as wife of Hendrick Corneliszen Kortregt. It is retained for salvage purposes.

Right again. Same problem exists - the are listed as sisters on each other's page. Also before we merge I would like to check the spelling of her name, birthdate and resolve siblings showing more than one (I can't see it now, but I know Alexander is there twice) Mary Ryan

Ennis-190 and Ennis-80 appear to represent the same person because: Please approve this merge. They are the same person.

Thanks, Tom Quick
