Birth*Maria Hendriks was born circa 1668 in de Caep de Goede Hoop. Even though Maria was said to be between 65 and 66 when she married Oortman in 1714, this seems unlikely. Oortman was around 38/39 and I am guessing that Maria was more likely around 45/46 - an age gap that seems more probable between a couple. It also fits more logically with her potential age at her first marriage. However, this date does seem to rule out Hendrick Hagens as her father. He does not, as far as I can tell, appear in the record after 1664.2,3,4

Marriage*She married Pieter Betram Oortmans on 9 September 1714 de Caep de Goede Hoop.5,6
