I checked Kinderhook, NY Reformed Church ("Baptism Record of
Kinderhook Reformed Church, Kinderhook, NY–1718–1899") published by
Arthur C. M. Kelly, Rhinebeck, NY
December 1, 1985. I found the following birth record for John
Risedorphon page 118:
Parents: Louwrens Rysdorp; Eliezabet Lant
Sponsors: Jurrian Volant, & wife Annatje Lant
According to Kelly, the pastor at that time was John Ritzema
Note: Hendrickje translates into the English name Henrietta or
Harriet. The English equivalent to Scherp is Sharp.
Hope this is what you were looking for!

The Columbia Co. Historical Society is at 5 Albany Ave.
Kinderhook, NY 12106 PO Box 311. They have been very helpful for
me, but are short of help and it takes a long time to get a
response. I am trying to find the parents of John L. Risedorph
(Reysdorp) who married Hendrickje Scherp in the Dutch Reform Church
of Kinderhook on Feb. 16, 1805. Their son Peter, Feb.19, 1817,was
my g.g.grandfather. They had six other children Catherine,
John,Hendrik, Laurence, Edward and Harriet Amanda. I believe the
parents might be Laurence R. and Elizabeth Land
