Elizabeth Roseboom Gansevoort
Elizabeth Roseboom was born at the end of 1768 and christened at the Schenectady Dutch church. She was the daughter of John H. and Susanna Veeder Roseboom. Subsequent resources and an extensive, family-based profile confirm this individual as the daughter of John Roseboom. That reminiscient resource - published almost fifty years after her death recalls her demeanor and temperment so characteristic of what we call traditional sources.
She is said to have grown up in Albany but moved with her family to Canajoharie where her father transferred his business within a few years of 1790.
Probably beginning about the time of their marriage, her husband operated a store near Fort Plain. By 1815, however, these Gansevoorts had returned to Albany to a home on Montgomery Street.
Conrad Gansevoort died in 1829 while visiting kin in Bath, Steuben County. Elizabeth Roseboom Gansevoort survived for another two decades. We seek information on her widowhood. She died in January 1850 at the home of her son-in-law in Monmouth, County, New Jersey. She had lived for eighty-one years.
Sources: The life of Elizabeth Roseboom Gansevoort has not been assigned a CAP biography number. This sketch is derived chiefly from family and community-based resources. A chapter in the family history published in 1897 is entitled "Elizabeth Roseboom Gansevoort and Descendnts." A variation of those historical tales appears online as well.
