SR 1/12:8-10: (see reference for verbatim copies of church records of this research conclusions); His son Peter (6957) has been handled by historians as hus of Lametje Veghte, which couple lived in Gowanus & New Utrecht (by Brooklyn) and whose descendants lived in Brooklyn area. There seems to be no association of that Peter (who md Veghte), with this family. He must have been the son of Abraham (6982), this Peter's (698) brother, who also lived in Brooklyn at that time.
