Gysbert Vandenbergh


Gysbert Vandenbergh probably was born before 1683. He was the son of Willem G. and Catharina Vanderpoel Vandenbergh. He grew up in the third ward home of a cartman and Albany property holder.

This individual probably did not marry. However, this Gysbert or at least two same-named contemporaries were connected (mostly as baptism sponsors) with the Dutch church in greater Albany County during the first decades of the eighteenth century.

In March 1714, he was named among the children in the will filed by his father.

However, he would not live much longer because "Guysbert Vandenburgh, late of Albany, carpenter, died intestate, [and] Letters of Administration are granted to his brother, Geritt Vandenburgh."

This Gysbert Vandenbergh seems to have made only a faint impression on the community landscape. With unanswered questions regarding his life and passing, at this time we must move on.
