James Thomas Garretts parent's were Albert Garrett m Josy ?
Safrona Elizabeth Halls parent's were Woodward Hall m Frances Cleveland
(related to Grover Cleveland)

I have also seen some indications that Barent's father was Jacob
Barentsen, whose father was Barent. The elder Barent is supposed to be
the brother of Nicholas (Claes) who sailed with Henrick Hudson and is
the father of Tjerck Claessen, also the brother of Jacob, who is said to
be the father of Jan and Cornelius. I haven't seen any verification on
this, though.
