Albert Albertsen Terhuyne (1619)

It has been a few years sunce working on my Terhune line. The wife I have for Albert Albertsen Terhuyne (born 1619) is Geertje De Nyse.

In David Kipp Conover's website he gives the parents of Geertje to be Teunis Nyssen Denyse and Phoebe Sales. He assigns a birthdate of circa 1642 to Geertje.

This looks good, except for a very important point. If she was born circa 1642 then she must of been a piece of work beginning motherhood at about age 6!

So, we can rule that one out. Then, in "Early New Netherlands Settlers" by Robert Gordon Clarke (another website) he gives the wife of Albert Albertsen to be Geertje Dircks, born circa 1622, and this looks more realistic.

But, conforming to the Dutch naming customs, they should have a son named Dirck - but they don't. They did have a son named Jan. So, perhaps Geertje was the daughter of a Jan. And, where does the De Nyse come in?
