    Notes 
    • Abraham Workman and Annetje Smith, and their children and ancestors, often cited as being the parents of Joseph Workman (variously represented as born 1732-1736), have no documented son named Joseph.
      Abraham's children have been researched carefully in Anderson (Workman Family History) and no son named Joseph, or John, or Isaac are mentioned, even though the oft-"estimated" birth years fit nicely into the 7-year gap in the child-bearing of Annetje with Abraham. Abraham's cousin, Isaac Workman, also descended from John William Workman/Woertman, but through Peter rather than Jans, did have three sons by these same names. Isaac's son, Joseph, is represented in Anderson's work as born in 1735 in Somerset Co., NJ, and her extensive research shows him as the Joseph who enlisted under Capt. Jackson and Capt. Stewart, drawn by her from original sources (noting that such Revolutionary War records do not always fully identify who is who). Therefore, our web site shows Joseph's father as Isaac and cites his lineage to John William.
