Margarita Hansen Slingerland
Margarita was less than a year old when her father died in March in 1758. However, her mother would live for several decades as an Albany householder and the North End neighbor of her Bradt kin. Two of her brothers would become residents of Albany as well.
This Slingerlands family made its home on a Watervliet farm.
However, Margarita's marriage lasted only a decade as, by 1791, Teunis had re-married, was raising a second family in his hinterland home, and eventually would move inside the city borders and enter business.
Albany native and mother Margarita Hansen Slingerland had lived less than thirty-five years.
