Not listed:  children lost in infancy prior to 1758; three children of Sarah Van Dienst Jones adopted by Thomas’ uncle Frederik upon his marriage to her in 1746.


Note: Thomas Dordrecht also has a maternal family, of course—he is, in fact, named for his English uncle, Thomas Pennyman—but he and his siblings are aware of their existence only through correspondence.
