Maria Hooghkerk was born in July 1698. She was a daughter in the large Albany family of Luycas and his second wife, the widow Judik Marselis Hooghkerk. She grew up in the first ward home of a mainline brickbaker.
During the 1730s and early 40s, these Heatons lived in Albany. After 1742, they may have relocated to New Jersey where they joined the Reformed church in Bergen County.
