vii. Beletje (~1733-)
viii. Petrus (1734-1777)
ix. Jannetje (~1736-)

From researcher Kris Van Derveer Liddle:3
These records are from Bible records of the Van Derveer family in the Brooklyn Historical Society:

Catrina b March 21, 1723 d Nov 2, 1773 m as 1st wife of Jacob Leffersts May 30, 1741. Several of her children's deaths recorded in the Bible, and she is buried at Flatbush Ch yard.

Jan [Maria's ancestor] b Aug 27, 1726 d Feb 2, 1771 m Sytie dr of Michael and Beltje Suydam, and she was probably m 1st to Dow Suydam but maybe not.

Garret b May 30, 1729 d Aug 31, 1743 age 14.3.1

Cornelius b Dec 5, 1731 d Feb 13, 1804 m Nov 28, 1761 Lea Ver Kirk both are buried at Flatbush.

Peter Van Derveer b Jan 1, 1734 at Flatbush d Oct 22, 1777 in Somerset Co., NJ m Jannetje Schenck (on Nov 16, 1758) the last marriage date from John Henry VanDerveer I have not found corroboration.

These are the only children of Cornelius. It has been difficut for some researchers to trace this family because Cornelius went to Freehold in Monmouth Co. with his brother Tunis and this is where the first 4 children were baptized. When his father died Cornelius inherited the family farm and returned to Flatbush where Peter was born and baptized.
