  21.  In Andrews, this couple is called John Benham and Catherine Van Dyke.  It
       is far from certain (in my mind) that this is the same couple as Jan
       Benham and Geatje Van Dyke.  Geatje would have been about 44 years old
       when she gave birth to their supposed son Peter Benham.

  25.  Riker states that she is either (name unknown) or Elizabeth, possibly the
       daughter of Gerrit Gerritszen (Van Wagoner).  Unsourced information on
       the World Wide Web claims that she is Mary Stillwell, and that she may
       possibly be the daughter of Richard Stillwell (son of Nicholas Stillwell
       and Ann (__)) and Mary Holmes.
