Cornelia Keteltas Ryckman
In May 1696, she married Albany native Pieter Ryckman at the Manhattan Dutch church. Their first three children were christened in New York. In 1708, their last child was baptized at the Dutch church in Albany.
After living for a time in Manhattan, these Ryckmans became Albany mainstays and lived in the first ward where Pieter practiced the tailor's trade and was a member of the city council.
After almost thirty years of marriage, Cornelia Keteltas Ryckman ("Pieter Ryckman's wife") was buried from the Albany church in March 1726. Her husband lived until 1748.
