I can't help with the identification of Geertje Dirckse at this point but I can help with some of the other names and thus narrow the choices.
First, Heyltie (baptized 1650) was not the daughter of Albert Albertsen (Terhune) but rather was the daughter of Elbert Elbertsen (Stoothoff). She is named as such in her father's will.
Gerritje Cornelise van Nes, the wife of Roelof Corneliszen, was a sister to Grietje Cornelise van Ness. Grietje was married to Pieter Claesen (Wyckoff). 1651, the time period of the baptism of Albert, is the time period in which Grietje and Pieter are known to have left the area of Beverwyck but they don't appear in Flatlands (Amerfoort) records until 1657. Based on the baptismal record it is thought that they may have been in Nieuw Amsterdam before moving to Flatlands. The presence of Wolfert Couwenhoven, another early resident of Flatlands, as another sponsor to this baptism, suggests that they were already there. In fact, this baptism may have taken place in Flatlands and recorded in New Amsterdam by a minister to had traveled to Flatlands and then returned to New Amsterdam where he recorded it.
