Susanna Switts was born in 1717 or 1718. She was the daughter of Schenectady expatriates Cornelis and Hester Visscher Switts. After her family moved to Albany, Susanna grew up in a large family in Albany's third ward.
This Van Ness family also lived in Albany's third ward. In November 1762, she was left a share of the estate of her uncle, Jacob Visscher. She died sometime afterwards.
