Anna is often placed last in birth order. Adam's will appears to list
his daughters in birth order and places Anna between Helena and Sara.

Hoffman shows him being baptized May 18, 1662.  I believe this is wrong.  According to Bergen's list of Brooklyn Baptism's, this is the date that Adam Jr., was baptized.  Need to check Brkn or BDC).
