This is from the McCloe Family Genealogy & History Site. Birth and Baptisms for the Mohawk Valley 1694 - 1906.

Baptimal date: 25 Aug. 1799 Birth date: 06 Aug. 1799 Father: Evert Hagaman Mother: Polly Wisser Child: John

Note that Polly is the nickname for Mary. Evert and Mary are in the same cemetery as Joseph (1740) and they are listed as man and wife. There is no John in the same graveyard that matches 1799. Evert was born 1770 and there must have been other male children before John. I can't find much information about Evert.
