    I did this research in 1998 and 1999 when I was trying to determine who the father was, or even which family Margaret Covenhoven, the wife of Philip Wynkoop, (my 5th great-grandfather), came from, which explains why this list is top-heavy with Covenhovens. To this date, May 31st, 2004, I still haven't been able to prove who her family was. That is, I have found no smoking gun which says that Margaret Covenhoven was the child of so-and-so Covenhoven. I have yet to find any records that make that definitive acknowledgement.

    That said, however, I do have a pretty good idea who her family was, even if I can't prove it yet. For that story, please see my webpage on the many Margaret Covenhovens at, The Mystery of Margaret Covenhoven's Parentage.
