His wife was Margarita Ruller of Stone Arabia. Between 1783 and 1803, the marriage produced eight children who were christened at the Albany Dutch church.
By the 1780s, he was being paid in bushels of wheat for services to the Albany city government. In 1788, his personal property was valued under the house of his father. But, beginning in 1790, he was listed on first ward censuses as the head of a large Southside household at 46 Hudson Avenue. Into the 1820s, sometimes, city directories identified him as a mason.
Jacob Bloomendal's will passed probate in 1835.
