Dorothea Hallenbeck m Laurens VanBuskirk

Surnames: Hallenbeck VanBuskirk Earle Bratt
Dorothea and Laurens married on 16 Nov 1743 in New York Lutheran Church and had five children. I suspect she died 1755-1764 or so but have never seen a date in print. He later married a Catherine and his last two children, b 1765 and 1766, are presumed to be hers.

Also there is some question about her parents. Many sources credit Gerrett Isaacse Hallenbeck and Tomassine Earle as being her parents, but some lean toward Hendrick Hallenbeck and Susanna Bratt, including Irene Shoemaker who is (or was) the VanBuskirk guru. I favour Gerret and Tomassine, because Laurens and Dorothea named their first daughter and second son after them. But some additional proof would be nice.
