Willem Jacobs young man from Burum living in Amsterdam marr. Geertje Hendricks young woman from Gogh 3 April 1643. The witness named Stynje Jacobs wife of Roelof Jans is a possible sister to Willem Jacobsz. There is no documentation that Geertje's father was Heyndrick Gerets van Gogh widower van Wees who marr. 22 July 1627 in Haarlem Gritge Jans widow from Gogh. Gritge Jans was not Geertje's mother, because Geerte was clearly born before 1628. Baptismal sponsor is Giertje Heindrix in 1644 and 1645. There is no documentation that she was Geertje's stepmother, Grietje Henricx could be a possible sister to Geertje Hendricks. Marriage and baptisms rec. in Amsterdam stadtsarchief and Henry Macy, Jr. NYGBS record v. 123,#3 1992)
