According to traditional sources, Daniel Winne may have been born as early as 1663. He was a younger son in the large family of New Netherland pioneers Pieter and Jannetje Adams Winne. He grew up on his father's farm south of Albany in Bethlehem. He was included in the will filed by his father in 1684.
Daniel Winne filed a will in January 1751. It stated that he was a "yeoman" and was living in Rensselaerswyck. It identified Dirckie and eight living children as the heirs of his real and personal property. Following his death, the will passed probate in March 1757.
Sources:Because he has not been documented as an actual Albany city resident, the life of Daniel Winne has not been assigned a CAP biography number. This sketch is derived chiefly from family and community-based resources.
