Jelte Eewkes

Note A.G.: In the baptizing books of the Dutch Reformed church of Slochteren is also recorded that "on March 13, 1622 a child Jan was baptized, son of Jelde Ewckes [*Old Dutch for Jelte Ewkes]", "on July 21, 1627 a child Mette, daughter of [*the same] Jelde Ewckens" and "on October 20, 1633 a child Hinrich, son of [*the same] Jelde Ewckes". Alas, the mother wasn’t recorded here; maybe the daughter Mette was named to her? Therefore we don’t know if "our" Jelte Ewkes was widower when he (re?)married in 1648 Gepke Roelofs
