The Theunis Teerpenning who was baptized on 28 December 1746 in Kingston was the son of Jacob Teerpenning and Mareitje Böhm. Witnesses were Marinus van Aaken and Sophia Teerpenning. I don't see any baptisms during that time period for Dirk Terpnning and Rachel DeGraff.

Seeing that Terpenning-29 and Terpenning-85 were imported by the same user, citing only data in [different] Ancestry Family Trees, I believe that they are both the same person, and parents should be Jacob and Mareitje, and baptism should be at Kingston.

Although the dates on the profiles are the same, Terpenning-85 is clearly a different person from Terpenning-29. One (or both) of the sets of dates is wrong.
