By 1665, she had married Frans Janse and had settled in Albany. Eleven of her children were baptized in the Albany Dutch church between 1665 and 1688 where she was a member.
During the last quarter of the seventeenth century, these Pruyns were second ward mainstays as Frans Janse supported his family as a tailor/trader.
Alida Pruyn died on September 20, 1704. Three days later, she was buried from the Albany Dutch church.
Sources: Because we still hope to secure defining information on her origins, the life of Alida Pruyn has not yet been assigned a CAP biography number. This profile is derived chiefly from family and community-based resources.
