It's pretty clear that Jacobus Van Garden married Catrina Kortrecht (widow of Abraham Van Campen)  on 15 Apr 1753 and they together had six children (Moses, Maraja, Susanna, Abram, Elisabeth, David, and Cattrina).  The primary sources for the marriage and births are listed as the records of the Walpack RDC,

What's not clear is just where Jacobus came from and who his parents and siblings were.  Some have him as a son of Harmen Van Garden and Elsjen Koddebek and another lists his parents as Harmen's brother Peter with Margaret Decker.  Neither seems likely at this point.  Dutch naming conventions would suggest that Jacobus' parents were named Moses and Maraja or Susanna but I have not been able to find a Van Garden couple with those names.

I'd really appreciate any help identifying Jacob Van Garden's parents.
