The icn_favorite.gif tag is there to assist in a different project (Abraham of Sandyston)

✖ rules out the profile as a match for a father or grandfather of Abraham Degroat of Sandyston, born c. 1760

The process is not over:

Keep in mind

  1. These are baptism dates. In numerous cases the birthdates are well before. We see cousins baptized on the same day to suit immediate family celebrations.
  2. The De Groot scions of this particular era are:
    1. Joost De Groot {ancestors from Gelderland} (who married BANTA)
    2. Pieter De Groot {ancestors from Leiden} (who married VAN SCHAIK)
    3. Jan De Groot {ancestors from Leiden} (who married SNEDECKER) ~• Pieter and Jan are brothers but Joost is not related in a prior generation, in any way that I can discern.
    4. Gerret De Groot (who married ETSAL and then COWENHOVEN does not have a father or other specific ancestors known by me. But: Notice that in the list below at 25 Dec 1721 Gerret is referred to as Gerrit Janse De Groot. This suggests that he is a son of the Jan De Groot just mentioned in (3) above,
  3. All the other De Groots in the list below are descendant of the four just named: Joost, Pieter, Jan, & Gerret

NOTES

  1. Joost De Groot and his wife Marritie Banta baptized eight children here at Hackensack. At least one is not among them. This is their sonJoost who married Arientje Sloove. Why is this? My guess it's because Marrite was not the mother. I now believe that this hints that the son Joost's mother was a person of color... (The GENi tree now reflects this. The relationship is locked until proven otherwise)
