Henry B. Hallenbeck
Henry B. Hallenbeck was born in October 1766. He was the first child born to the marriage of Albany natives Bernardus and Neeltie Clark Hallenbeck. He grew up in a large first ward family in a modest home perhaps on or near Court Street.
In 1790, the first Federal census showed him alone in a first ward house. That would change after he married nineteen-year-old Rachel Winne at the Albany Dutch church in July 1790. By 1806, seven children had been christened in Albany. The census of 1800 showed the couple and four young children in their household located near his widowed mother and other family homesteads.
Henry B. Hallenbeck was dead by February 1815 when his will passed probate.
