Geertruy Groesbeck Arnold
Geertruy Groesbeck Arnold may have been born in August 1757. Thus, she could have been the daughter of Hannes and Elizabeth Van Brakel Groesbeck of Schaghticoke. However, we seek more verifiable information on her precise origins.
In March 1777, she is said to have married newcomer Eli Arnold. By 1793, seven children had been christened in Albany - mostly at the Dutch church although their marriage record does not seem to appear in its extant records.
Sources: The life of Geertruy Groesbeck Arnold may not have a CAP biography number. This sketch is derived chiefly from family and community-based resources.
