Annetje was the daughter of Johannes Lourense Opdyck, a planter and husbandman, and his wife, Catherine Trintye, whose maiden name is unknown.

She married Cornelius Anderson in 1690 in Hopewell Twp., Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co., New Jersey. They had eight children: Eliakim in 1690, John, Abraham, Cornelius in 1698, Rebecca in 1700, Bartholomew in 1706, Andrew about 1710 and Fransinah about 1714. The birthyears of the other two are unknown.

She died after 1746, probably in Hopewell Twp., when her son John bequeathed 325 acres in Bethlehem, Hunterdon Co., and "my share of plantation in Hopewell where my mother now lives" to his wife and children.

It is assumed, but not confirmed, that Annetje was buried in First Presbyterian Church of Ewing Cemetery. Her husband had been a trustee of the church, and she lived nearby for the rest of her life.
