The argument is made that Lammert Dorland's second wife Enjelte is probably the daughter of William Post, Jr. and Marytje Van Cleef and thus her surname is Post. We do not have documentation for this relationship, but infer it from the fact that the name Enjelte is unusual, that she named her only daughter Mary (possibly after her mother) and that Enjelte, daughter of Marytje Van Cleef, would be a first cousin of Dyna Van Liew, Lammert's first wife, since their mothers would be sisters.[3]

    "Lammert married (3) by New Jersey license dated 5 May 1747, Styntje/Christina Terhune...." implies that Enjeltje was deceased before this.
    See text for argument that her name is Post.
