There is good documentation that William Piatt's last wife was Sarah Shotwell, m. 14 Sept 1778. My quandary is - was he previously married to both a Jemina Quick & a Jacomyntje Quick? The websites all interchange these 2 women as to birth, marriage & death dates, even parentage. I believe Jemina's parents were Abraham Quick & Matilda Wyckoff and Jacomyntje's parents were Abraham Quick & Maghtel Veghte. These two Abraham Quicks were first cousins. Any clarification would really be appreciated.

JEMIMA QUICK was the first wife of Capt. WILLIAM PIATT (1743-1791). They were married in Somerset Co
NJ on 27 Jun 1774, with the marriage license dated 24 Jun 1774. JEMIMA was the daughter of Col ABRAHAM
QUICK, of Ten Mile Run NJ, and MACHTEL VEGHTE. JEMIMA and JACOMYNTJE were one in the same
person. Old Dutch records were often written in what sounds like a dialect when read aloud. The only son of
JEMIMA and WILLIAM was a JOHN who was baptised 12 April 1778 at the Six Mile Run Church in Somerset Co
NJ. (WILLIAM had 4 other children by his second wife SARAH SHOTWELL.)
