Hendrick Van Benthuysen
He was one of eight children named in the will filed by his father in June 1769.
We seek information on his wartime service as afterwards the young man was accorded a land bounty right in conjunction with the Albany militia regiment.
In December 1785, he married Albany native Cathalina Hun at the Albany Dutch church. By 1804, six children were christened in the church where he was a member and occasional baptism sponsor.
In December 1833, he made a statment in support of the pension application of his brother William. Hendrick Van Benthuysen died in June 1834 at the age of seventy-two. His widow survived until 1841.
