In 1708 his parents moved the family from New York to the Ritan Valley of New Jersey.

I have now attached a list of his children and am trying to clear up an old problem where Johannes Sebring-32 has 3 wrong children attached with dates that do not compute correctly.

The following 3 children should be moved to the correct parents, Johannes Sebring-106 and Aeltje Lefferts-49 ...

Lefkers Sebring-51
Annetje Sebring-52
unknown Sebring-53.

Then the following merges should be initiated ...

Sebrige-1 merge Sebring-51
Sebring-380 merge Sebring-52

Thanks for the help with this.

What was your source for the list of children? (The baptism is the only bit of this profile that is supported by a good source; more records are needed.)

I got the info from his wife's wikitree profile.

Is the baptism 1702 or 1703 as shown in your church records section? also shows 1703.
Changing his mother from Leboiteaux-1 to Volkertse-1; as can be seen by his baptism records he was Cristyntje's son. It doesn't appear that Roelof had any children by his second wife.
