> 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!
> Jan Barentszen Kunst m. 1) Jannetje Jans and had
> 1. Hilletje Jans Kunst who m. Micolas Roosevelt in 1682
> m. 2) Jacomyntie Cornelis Slecht, the d/o Cornelis Barentsen Slcht and
> Tryntje Tyssen Bos
> 2. Jannetje Jans Kunst, bap. 1664 Feb 24
> m. (banns) 1684 Oct 05 Cornelis Gerrtiszen Nieuwkerk (see above)
> 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.
