I am interested in confirming, if I can, that Catharine Dutcher, christened 4/23/1760 Sleepy Hollow (of the Wilhelm D family, via Jan, Barent, Abraham) is my Catharine.
My Catharine Dutcher was born circa 1760. She married Timothy Brooks, and had four daughters, all of whom were christened in NYC, the first two in the 1st & 2nd Presby church (which was very liberal about christening anyone) and the second two in the NY DRC. Catharine and Timothy lived in lower Manhattan. Their daughter Lucinda b. 29 Nov 1783 married a Dutch man named Barent (B) Spier b. 20 Mar 1779 in the NYC DRC 28 Dec 1802, and I descend from their daughter Catharine.
Also, I would love to know any infomation about the second wife of Barent de Duyster b. 1675 Esopus, married 29 Dec 1717 in Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow.
