Their Albany history begins with the settlement of Teunis Cornelisse in Beverwyck before 1660.
In 1790, the first United States census for the city of Albany configured only one Slingerland-named household but eleven more in surrounding Watervliet.
In 1813, the first city directory counted three Slingerland-named addresses on Market Street.
Slingerland Street off of Morton Avenue today recalls the name of this pioneer early Albany family.
