Connection to ParentsEdit

As the above transcribed will is the only known reference to Nicolaas being the father of Marijke, and it does not refer to Nicolaas as the son of Gerrit, the connection to his father is not proven to the best of the author's knowledge. However, there are a number of genealogies on the internet who list his father as Gerrit Claessen Van Letten. Further research is required.
