The parents connected to this profile are not merely Uncertain. I judge them to be impossible. Does anyone know where that info came from?

The baptismal witnesses shown for the baptisms of her children are almost entirely paternal relatives, mostly the paternal grandparents Andries Jochemsz and Selijtje Fredericks. In the absence of other evidence, I would guess that she was an orphan, or at least did not have family in New Netherland.

But the witness at her oldest brother's baptism was Hendrik Kip, who would be the mother's father. Baptisms didn't always happen at birth, and the marriage of the parents in 1649 could have been a 2nd marriage. Let's not be too quick to rip her away from this family.
Also, to further clarify, if her parents married in 1649 and she was born in 1650, she COULD have had a child in 1665.
Added projects as manager and added baptisms of children + source :)
