She is more likely the daugther of Jon Sinclair.

We have had a problem in this area people mixing several "Anna Jonsdatter", but she is neither a daughter of the John Sinclair either..

There is no doubt that this Anna Jonsdatter Benkestok is the daughter of Jon Trondson Benkestok. She is mentioned in her fathers probate records as living in 1599.

But she has never been married to Peder Jacobson Falch. She also had a son, born in Fana outside Bergen, in 1599, and the fathers name was Ulrik Meyer.

Sources: Wilhelkmine Brandt: Slægten Benkestok and Jens Christensen lesemesters dagbok (a contemporary diary written by a teacher in Bergen at the time of the son's birth.)

Correct, - I just found the old discussion this, and it looks like I forgot to make the split as I promised, or someone have merged them again. At leas I cannot find a Anna Jonsdatter managed by me and married to Peder Jacobson Falch.

The Anna Jonsdatter married to Peder Jacobson Falch is just a Anna Jonsdatter, and she should from the last conclusions not have any known parents (except that the patronymic name tells us that the fathers name was Jon, but we don't add such profiles)

I noticed that you have removed the connection to Foged Petter Jacobssøn Falch,and you should also remove all info in About Me on this. There is however some profiles blocking these lines for me to be able to clean up, for example the wifes of Peder where at leas one of them are listed as Anna Benkestok.

You should also please respect that it was first in 1923 Norwegian women was allowed to take her husbands last name, so please no Anne Falch, and in any case only the birth-name is correct in a family tree.

Please verify which Anna Jonsdatter the profile pictures should be attached to.
