Johannes, fourth son of Harmen Albertse, was carried away to Canada in 1690 with his brother Albert. After his return he married Maria, daughter of Johannes Fort of Watervliet, in 1705, and secondly Engeltie, daughter of Gerrit Symonse Veeder in 1732. He had 13 children and died Aug. 14, 1748.

He inherited perhaps a portion of the hindmost farm No. 8 from his father, to which was added 120 acres of upland in the rear, by patent dated June 12, 1714; this land was situated about 600 yards south of the Poenties kil. (202-1)
