I have received some clarification (digital copies) regarding this puzzling matter.

There are only two girls (twins).  Recorded in church book year 1865, at bottom of page 504 with no entry #, but following entry #5 is Wilhelmine Julie born 24 December 1864 and noted as a twin.
At the top of page 505 with no entry # but above #6,is Elisabeth Amalia born 24 December 1864 and also shown as a twin.  

I can see how the indexing mistake was made assuming the two names given in each entry plus the notation of zwillinge are individual children.

  Hello Margaret,
  at least Henriette Wilhelmine died (look at http://wiki.wolhynien.net/index.php/BREGUET,_Georg ).
  By the way, BREGUET was a famous family of Swiss watchmakers.
  The surname LILLJE is of Swedish origin, both not typical for Volhynian colonists (Georg BREGUET was an urban native of 
  Windau, Courland; Swedes settled along the Baltic coasts).
