Johannes Van Vechten
These Van Vechtens first made their home in Albany's first ward where Johannes's property was accorded a moderate assessment. Perhaps they took over for Maria's father when he moved away from Albany a couple years after their marriage.
In 1715, he was identified as as sergeant in Johannes Schuyler's troop of horse.
In July 1708, Johannes expressed interest in buying a plantation in Schaghticoke. Perhaps he was the Johannes Van Vechten who was living in Rensselarswyck in 1720 or identified as a resident of Schaghticoke.
Sources: The life of Johannes Van Vechten is CAP biography number 2527. This sketch is derived chiefly from family and community-based resources. We are aware that we may have melded the identities of several same-named individuals together. In any event, this treatment lacks several essential ingredients.
