By the 1660s, she had married Albany trader Jacob Sanderse Glen. The marriage produced at least five children who established the Glen family name in early New York. These Glens lived on upper State Street where Jacob Sanderse was a prominent fur trader. They were members of the Albany Dutch church.
Catharina Witbeck Glen was pregnant when she lost her husband in 1685. By terms of his will, she was accorded use of his estate. In 1686, this widow acquired another lot in Albany. She was identified as the head of their first ward household in 1689.
