"Hannah" and Isaac had 4 children together;
1st: Mary Jane Ware-born July 19, 1847
2nd: William Montgomery Ware-born August 22, 1848
3rd: James Monroe Ware-born after the September 13, 1850 census, to 1851
4th: John Addison Ware-born April 19, 1853

Almost 10 years after their marriage, Hannah died in 1856, leaving her husband , Isaac, with their 4 children.
Isaac, a farmer, remarried 2 years later in 1858, to the widow, Mary Ann Huddleston/Doran. Mary had 2 young daughters of her own.

*The name Johanna, meaning 'God is gracious', was a popular name in the Netherlands, as elsewhere.
Johanna is still the most common name given to a baby girl in Zeeland, a northwestern part of Netherlands.

The Groenendyke ancestors came to New Amsterdam (eventually becoming New York state) in the mid 1600s from the Netherlands. Called New Amsterdam, because most inhabitants came from the Netherlands, with the Dutch Reformed Church being most common, whose records list Groenendyke births and marriages in the New Jersey, New York area.

* another findagrave memorial bio, lists the last two sons of Johannah and Isaac, as being the children of Isaac and his next wife, Mary Ann. By looking at all the birth dates, and birth places, marriage dates, and the death date of Johannah, and of Mary Ann's previous husband; all of the 4 children of Isaac and Johannah can be proven.
