Jacomyntie Van Schoonhoven Van Deusen
In May 1697, she married Albany native Abraham Van Deusen at the Albany Dutch church where she was a longtime member. By 1707, the marriage had produced five children who were christened in Albany and Kingston.
Like many members of both their families, this young Albany couple probably lived outside the stockade as well as they made but a faint impression on the community record.
Jacomyntie Van Schoonhoven Van Deusen was last heard from in 1707 in association with the birth of her last child.
