I am researching the family of ADRIAEN HENDRICKSE ATEN.I came across a reference to the DUSENBERRY family in some notes on the ATEN/AUTEN'S in the Proceddings of the New Jersey Historical Society.I was wondering if any of you had ever seen this reference and thought that ADRIAEN HENDRICKSE ATEN and HENDRICK HENDRICKZEN could have been brothers?Here is the reference:
A HENDRICK HENDRICKZEN from Doesburg, Holland, who may or may not have been the brother to ADRIAEN HENDRICKSE ATEN, was m June 12, 1655 in the New Amsterdam Dutch ch, and had children Hendrick, Johannes and Grietje.The two sons became the ancestors of the Dusenberry families,(corrupted name of Doesburg).
I then also found in the church records from the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church in Flatbush New York the baptism of the daughter of ADRIAEN HENDRICKSE ATEN AND LYSBETH:
March 31, 1678 at MIDWOUD

I would love to hear from any of you on this subject.
