    • (1) Peck, I. Heyward, "The Rev. Johannes Theodorus Polhemius and Some of His Descendants," New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, Vol. 90, p. 171 (1959):

      Adrianna b. abt. 1644, probably on the island of Itamarca, Brazil; d. before 1702. Algemeen Nederlandisch Familieblad, vols. 5 and 6 contain the baptismal records of the Dutch in Brazil but apparently covers only those at Recif. There are no Polhemus baptisms recorded probably because Domine Polhemus spent most of his time on Itamarca. About 1661 Adrianna mar. Jan Roeloffsen Sebring b. in Drenthe, Holland, in 1631 who had emigrated to America with his brother-in-law Steven Coerte Van Voorhees aboard De Bonte Koe in April 1660. He settled in Flatbush, L. I., and attended the Dutch Church there where his father-in-law preached. On March 6, 1674, he conveyed to the Rev. Polhemus 24 morgens of land in Flatbush which he had bought of Cornelius Smallwood and on May 17, 1681, he sold the balance of his property there and removed to Bergen, N. J. On Oct. 2, 1682, he and his wife were received into the Dutch Church there by certificate from the church in Midwout (Bergen Dutch Church recs.). They had seven children:

      (a) Cornelius Sebring b. abt. 1662; mar. Aeltje Fredriks Lubbertse.

      (b) Ida Sebring b. abt. 1664, in Midwout; mar. Isaac Billew.
