The LNAB is done, as far husband at least. It looks like he might be the only possible Teunis Terpenning at this point as his father was the progenitor?

I added his church records which might help to clarify. The order of the names of the children looks almost traditional, though they didn't name a child Moses.

Let's not merge these until an appropriate LNAB is associated with one of the profiles. I'm pretty sure LNAB should be Teerpenning, but it's too late tonight to check the records.

Also, I recall some uncertainty as to whether there was more than one Teunis associated with these profiles. Don't want to conflate two or three people into one profile.
