Cornelis Maase Bloomendal
In 1715, he was a member of an Albany militia company. In 1720, 1742, and 1763, he was listed as a freeholder living in the third ward. Most likely, he became head of the third ward household formerly held by his widowed mother.
He probably did not marry. He was, however, a regular baptism sponsor at the Albany Dutch church.
In 1756, he was identified as a brazier. During the 1760s, his Albany holdings (including a house, shop, and stables) were accorded moderate assessments. After the passing of his mother, he lived with his brother John and his family. He owned another house where his brother Jacob lived.
Cornelis Maase Bloomendal filed a will in March 1761. It named his brothers and sister and their families as his heirs. At that time, he stated that he was "weak in body." He was dead by January 1770 when the will passed probate.
