By the 1770s, the Hinderers were living in Albany's second ward and soon would be identified among the city's prominent Lutherans. In 1795, church records gave Jacob Jr's. age as twenty-six. Between 1793 and '95, a Jacob "Henter" rented property from the church near Lodge and Pine Streets.

His wife was named Margaret who was eighteen years old in 1795.

Becinning in 1798, "Jacob Jr." was known as a baker and was qualified as a juror and freeholder.

Jacob Hinderer, Jr. He was not named on the Albany census during that time. Perhaps, he was accounted for under the households of his father (whose household included a man of this subject's age in 1800) or of his brother.

In 1814 and 1815, "Jacob Henderer, Jur." was listed among the city's licensed cartmen. After that, his name drops for community rolls.
