Cornelia Gardinier Marselis
Cornelia Gardinier (aka "Neeltie") was born in November 1731. She was the daughter of regional residents Andries and Sara (?) Gardinier. Perhaps, she was his second wife. In 1720, an "Andries Gardinier" was identified as a freeholder of Rensselaerswyck.
These Marselises began to raise their family in a home on Pearl Street.
Perhaps, Neeltie was dead by 1770 when her husband may have re-married.
We seek definitive information on the passing of one-time Albany wife Cornelia Gardinier Marselis.
