His wife was Catalyntje, dau. of Andries De Vos, Deputy Director of Rensselaerswyk. After the death of her husband, the grants of land allotted to him, were confirmed to her. Her home lot in the village, was the west quarter of the block bounded by Washington, Union, Church and State Streets, being about 200 ft. sq., Amsterdam measure. On this lot her grandson, Arent A.
