   > David,  You have given us a very interesting puzzle, and I have a solution
   > to propose.  I can not find the primary records you would like to have,
   > but if we consider family relationships I think a strong case can be made
   > that you were right in assuming that though Gerritje Gerrits, the widow of
   > Barent Kunst, married Jacob DuBois she could not have been the mother of
   > Jacob's eldest daughter, Magdalena.  Here goes!

   > 3. Barent Jansen Kunst, bap. 1667 Jan 30
   >       m. Gerritje Gerrits Nieuwkerk  (see above)
   > Barent Jansen Kunst and Gerritje Gerrits Nieuwkerk had one daughter named
   > Jacomyntie Barents Kunst.
   > Barent was alive as late as 1689 Oct 13 when -- as you pointed out --
   > he and his wife, Gerritje Gerrits Nieuwkerk, were godparents at the
   > baptism in Kingston (#637) of Barent, the son of Barents's sister
   > Jannetje who married Cornelis Gerritszen Nieuwkerk, Gerritje's brother.
   > There is no way that Gerritje Gerrits could be widowed, married, and
   > become the mother of Jacob DuBois' oldest daughter -- Magdalena -- who was
   > baptized at Kingston on 1690 May 25 (Bap. #651)!
   > I believe that the mother of little Magdalena was Lysbeth VerNoy.  If
   > you'll look again at the marriages at Kingston for the year 1689, you'll
   > see that on 1689 Mar 08 there was a double wedding.  Two DuBois brothers
   > married two VerNoy sisters.  Jacob and David DuBois were both sons of
   > Louis DuBois and Catherine Blancon. (LeFevre's compilation of the DuBois
   > family in his "History of New Paltz", pages 510 and following, takes no
   > account of Jacob's first marriage).  Lysbeth Vernoy (who married Jacob)
   > was born about 1663; Cornelia, her sister, (who married David) was born
   > about 1667. They were daughters of Cornelis Corneliszen VerNoy and his
   > wife Annetje Cornelis.
   > Now look again at baptism #651.  At Magdalena DuBois' baptism the
   > godparents were "The father" = Jacob DuBois himself; "Annetje Vernoy" =
   > the mother of Lysbeth Vernoy with her married surname instead of her
   > patronymic; Louis DuBois.  So you have the nice, traditional balance of
   > the maternal grandmother and the paternal grandfather.
   > As you pointed out, Gerritje Gerrits was still the widow of Barent Kunst
   > on 1692 May 17 at Bergen DRC where she witnessed the baptism of Jannetje,
   > the daughter of Matheus Corneliszen Nieuwkerk and his second wife, Catryna
   > Paulus.  Little Jannetje would have been Gerritje's first cousin, since
   > Gerrit Corneliszen and Mattys Corneliszen were brothers.
   > Sometime after 1692 May, Gerritje Gerrits Nieuwkerk, widow of
   > Barent Jansen Kunst, became the second wife of Jacob DuBois, the widower
   > of Lysbeth VerNoy.  LaFevre says that Jacob and Gerritje's son -- Barent
   > -- was born 1693 May 03.  I suggest that he was named in honor of
   > Gerrtije's late husband.

It is not enough to educate. There must be a focus afterward.
The brightest spot of that focus should be space.
Joint geo and humanitarian projects should be right behind,
since the space effort will shepherd all others.
