Research notes

Parents, not these

John was not the son of Jan Pieterse Wyckoff as he had a son Johannes who married Aeltje Barkaloo. He wasn't the son of Neeltje Roelofs Schenck, who was having children with Albert van Couvenhoven well before and after this John was born.

Removed Neeltje which was att. here as she is being mistaken for another Neeltje. Will find her # or add her.
