Elizabeth Vinhagen Oothout
Jonas Oothout seems to have passed during the 1770s or 80s. Mindful of the three Oothout-named households reported in Watervliet in 1790, we seek infomation on Elizabeth's living situation after 1770.
Widow Elizabeth Vinhagen Oothout was buried from the church in February 1806. She is said to have been the first child christened in the "new" Albany church in 1715 and the last buried from it in 1806 - or so the story goes.
Sources: The life of Elizabeth Vinhagen Oothout is CAP biography number 3416. This sketch is derived chiefly from family and community-based resources.
