Penelope Stout is David Stout's mother, and Richard Stout is his father.

Elizabeth Bee is the wife of Richard Stout's father, John Stout.

There is a lot of documentation for David and the Stout family.

What is the "UNCONFIRMED ANCESTOR, CONFLICTING INFORMATION"? The bio looks like it has gone thru some merges without cleanup. In the mixed narratives, I see Penelope van Princis listed as spouse and mother and Elizabeth Bee as his mother. Is this the conflict?

Michelle, he will not be a New Netherland Project profile, because his birth is after 1664 in New Jersey, under British rule. The area of New Jersey, especially this area of East Jersey, was, I think, a wilderness nominally under control by the Dutch through September 1664, and then under British rule until the October 1674 ceding of all territory by the Dutch to the Brits.

However, this region of East Jersey was under contention in that final decade through three major wars. In any event, I think we have determined that we are excluding New Jersey profiles from NNS for any births in New Jersey after Sep. 1664.

There were a lot of Dutch settlers who moved over to Jerey from Long Island, perhaps in the battles of population settlement control. But the Sept. 1664 seems a good cutoff.
