Dear Dave, I was able to scrounge up a few definite dates, and they may
be of help in your search.
At the Albany DRC "Deborah", the daughter of Christopher (sic) Sickel and
his wife Neeltje Fynhout was baptized on 14 Aug 1779. The witnesses were
Hannes and Hester Sikkels.
According to the Ostrander Genealogy, "Neeltje", the daughter of Petrus
Fynhout and Rebecca Ostrander, was baptized 20 May 1753 in the DRC at
Rhinebeck Flats. I do not have these records in order to be able to
verify that date.
So it appears that your Christian/Christopher Sickles was probably born
about 1750 instead of 1770.
I found 4 children of Gerret Sickelse and Hilletje Klaeuw baptized in the
1766 ZachariasZacharias Sickelse, Catryntje Rees
1771 JacobusLucas Wyngaert, Margrieta Wyngaert
1774 NeeltjeLouwrens Scherp, Lisabeth Scherp
1776 AnnetjeJohannes Klauw, Margrietje Goes
I found the baptism of Hilletje Klauw in the Albany DRC. She was baptized
there on 1 July 1739. Her parents were Gysbert Klauw and Neeltje
[Scherp]. The witnesses were Andries Sijerp and Elizabeth Goeway.
So it appears that Christopher Sickels was possibly a bit younger but of
the same generation as Gerret. Perhaps they were cousins.
With the constant recurrence of the given name "Zacharias" in various
Sickel families of record, I think they may all be descendants of the
immigrant Zacharias of whom Regina Haring wrote earlier today.
Good luck in your hunt! Dorothy
