Anna Switts Beekman
In November 1762, she was named to share in the estate of her uncle, Jacob Visscher.
Hendrick Beekman died before the mid-1760s for his widow was listed as the owner of substantial land across the river in Rensselaerswyck and of a property in the first ward of Albany where she lived with her son.
We believe that she may have been alive in 1779 and living in the same location with a "French merchant" boarding in her house.
Anna Switts Beekman probably died during the 1780s.
