[1] Though not identified in the Bennet article GLIF Vol I, familial connections revealed in these records perhaps suggest that this Gitty Bennet is the same as Gitty, daughter of John Winant Bennet, and who married William Golder (GLIF Vol I:140)? [See NYG&B Record 113:221].

[2] In his article on the Van Kouwenhovens, Mr. Cocheu states that Jacobus Ryder married Johanna Cowenhoven, daughter of William Cowenhoven and Johanna Wyckoff, on 26 November 1800 [GLIF Vol. II:583]. Cocheu does not again mention Jacobus Ryder throughout his extensive study of the family and it may therefore be that the Flatbush Reformed Dutch Church record cited here refers to the same couple, though the year of marriage differs. In his study of his Ryder family, Mr. Kenneth Richard Harms, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, notes that Jacobus Ryder, son of Bernardus Ryder and his second wife Femmetie DeNyse, had issue [Ryder Genealogy Mss. (1979). Kenneth Richard Harms]: Femmetie Ryder, married John A. Voorhies; William Ryder, died young; Johanna Ryder; William Ryder, married Eliza Van Cleef and had Agnes Ryder, who married Stephen B. Schoonmaker; and Bernardus Ryder, who died young. This family group appears to have followed the Dutch Naming Conventions, to wit, the first and second daughters Ryder are named for their grandmothers Femmetie DeNyse and Johanna Wyckoff, while the sons are named for the grandfathers, Bernardus Ryder and William Cowenhoven. Thus, it would appear that the Church record errs in naming the bride of Jacobus Ryder as Ann, rather than Johanna, Cowenhoven, and that Mr. Cocheu errs in the marriage date.
