Cornelia Clark Hallenbeck
Cornelia Clark probably was born during the 1740s. Perhaps, she was the daughter of relative newcomer Patrick Clark - the name of one of her sons. In that case, her mother would have been Albany native Cornelia Waldron. She most often would be known as "Eleanor" or "Neeltie."
In March 1766, "Neeltje" married her first ward neighbor Bernardus Hallenbeck at the Albany Dutch church. By the mid-1780s, eight children had been christened in the Albany church where she was a pewholder.
