from page 91 of LEAVES OF A STUNTED SHRUB Vol Two

"Annetje Hendricksen who was married to Jan Jansen and died before 04 February 1663 ... must have been a sister of Femmetjen Hendricksen."

From http://www.skeeterkitefly.com/finelineage_V3.htm

Femmetje's sister, they say, was named Hilletje, and their brother's name was Roeloff. Hilletje, widow of the soldier Andries Barentsen, married Albert Jansen of Steenwyck in 1664. Later that year, Roeloff (now a carpenter) married Aeltje Lubberse of Elburgh. Also in 1664, Femmetje and Joost's daughter Maertje was baptized; the witnesses were Roeloff, Hilletje, and Albert Jansen. Not till Joost married Lysbet four years later was there any authenticated tie between these siblings and Maycken—other than their all hailing from Meppel, and having fathers named Hendrick.
