Jacob A. Ten Eyck was a businessman who sold dry goods and other products at various Albany locations. He seems to have been the partner of his brother, Abraham Ten Eyck, Jr. Even before the death of his father-in-law in 1810, he also took charge of the Gansevoort dock and then of the Whitehall property.
[The prominent life of another Jacob A. Ten Eyck (1781-1859), a member of the State Assembly, prevents assignment of substantial qualitative information to this subject.]
Jacob A. Ten Eyck died in July 1862 at his "Whitehall Place" home. He had lived more than ninety years!
