Elizabeth Wendell Ten Broeck
Elizabeth Wendell was born before 1683. She was the daughter of Albany leaders Johannes Wendell and Elsie Staats Wendell. Her father died while she was still a child and her mother re-married in 1697. She grew up in a large combined family in a landmark house on Albany's main street.
In 1691, she was named among the many heirs to her father's substantial estate.
The marriage appears to have been childless and was short-lived as Johannes Ten Broeck re-married in December 1714. Elizabeth Wendell Ten Broeck probably lived less than forty years!
