Jacob Winne was born in February 1760. He was an older son in the large family of Jellis and Feytie Van Woert Winne. He grew up in the Market Street home of North End mainstays who anchored Jacob's family network into the 1800s.
Coming of age during the War for Independence, we seek information on his wartime activities.
His wife was Susanna Everts (or Hoghson). Between 1778 and 1792, three children were christened at the Albany Dutch church where he contributed to church operations. In 1795 and December 1798, sons were christened at the Heldebergh Dutch church in Guilderland. Their father was called "Jacob Winne, Esq."
By 1800, his name no longer appeared on Albany rolls although his father's household still was configured on the city census.
A map of lots in the West Manor was made by a "Jacob Winne" in 1789.
