  • Notes 
    • As of 19 Jan 2019, she is identified on Wikitree as a daughter of Pieter Johannes Lansing (1721-1807) and Elizabeth Wendell (1723-1761), which would give her a descent from both the Schuyler family (of the three sisters made famous by Hamilton) and the van Rensselaer family, patroons of the Rensselaerwyck manor.

      But a sidebar to that Wikitree page, attributed to Ellen Smith, notes that the parentage assigned to her by Munsell (citation details below), which we follow, is as plausible or more plausible for several reasons. Of their first three children, Elizabeth and Jacob were the names of Johannes Van Woert's parents, and Hubertje was the name of Cathalyntje's mother, assuming Cathalyntje's parents were as shown here. And assuming the same, two of this couple's children's baptisms — those of Jacob and Willempje — were witnessed by Jacob Lansing and his wife Willempje, Jacob being one of Cathalyntje's brothers.
