• "According to David Riker's Register, page 1005, Tryntje Grevenraet's patronymic was indeed Andrieszen and she married Jan Dircksen Meyer before coming to New Netherland. This would have been about 1647, to judge by the births of her children."

• It is of note that she had a rather young marriage and that there are not good original sources for her date of birth and date of marriage

alternate story for her parentage at: (mother?)

She was buried on 5 October 1688 at Dutch Reformed Church Churchyard, Bergen, Hudson County, New Jersey. (?: shouldn't this be Sixteen SEVENTY- eight? )
