Bergen Family (Bergen, 1876), p. 73, says that Jacob and Catalyn were twins. McCracken (TAG 35:4, "Catalyntje Trico Rapalje," says, in note 6, "The interval between this baptism and the preceding is so short as to raise serious doubt as to whether they were children of the same parents. The sponsers fer Catalyna's baptism were Aert Willemszen and wife, not members of the Rapalje or Bergen families, so far as known. When Sarah Bogaert petitioned for additional land on 4 April 1656, after her marriage to Bogaert, she alluded only to seven, not eight children of her deceased husband Bergen. Those who assume, with Allaben, that Catalyna was a child of Sarah, must also believe, with him, that she had died. He pcints out (p. 223) that there is no further trace of her."
