Anna Oothout Quackenbush
In December 1733, Anna would have been about thirty when she married Pieter Quackenbush at the Albany Dutch church. The marriage produced at least four sons but only two of them seem to have been christened there. Perhaps others were baptized beyond Albany.
In October 1738, her father's will left her a one-fifth share of her father's farm. At that time, she was among seven surviving siblings.
This Quackenbush family made their home in Rensselaerswyck where Pieter was a prominent resident.
Anna Oothout Quackenbush died in 1757 and was buried from the church. Her husband survived until at least 1782.
