More Distaff Surname Issues - O & P

Prall: Arent Jansen Prall was married three times. There are issues with all three. (1) Marie Billiou's death date is in question - sometime during the 1690s. No name issues. (2) Catherine: There is no record of Arent's 2nd marriage. My belief, based on Arent's will, is that she was Tryntje [Catherine] Barents Blom, widow of Hans Christopher and mother of Arent's daughter-in-law, Maria Christopher. (3) Arent's will also mentions a 3rd wife, believed to be Madlenor. Again, no marriage record. Arent's grandson, Aaron, was married twice. His 2nd wife, Mary Whittaker, is well documented. The identity of Aaron's first wife is unknown. They may have married in Kingston/Wildwyck, NY. They had a daughter, Alida, who was raised by Aaron's parents, Pieter and Maria.

Perkins: Lydia Perkins[1640-1715] , wife of Francis Peabody, was the daughter of  Isaac Perkins and an unidentified Wife.

Olmstead: The wife of Richard Olmstead [1608-1687] remains unidentified.

Obee: Hendrick Obee [1625-aft 1692] suffers the same fate as Richard Olmstead.
