Jannetje Hogan Bradt
Stefan Bielinski

Jannetje Hogan was born in December 1747. She was the daughter of Albany residents William Jr. and Susanna Lansing Hogan. As the daughter of a blacksmith and sometime Rensselaerswyck farmer, Jannetje could expect that her marriage would cement her ties to the community's production or service class societies.

In March 1766, she married Albany native Arent Bradt. By 1785, seven children had been christened at the Albany Dutch church.

These Bradts lived in the second ward near where Fox Street met North Pearl. Arent provided for his family as a cartman and wagonner.

Jannetje Hogan Bradt was accounted for in her husband's household on the censuses of 1790, 1800, and 1810. After that, her name dropped from community rolls.
