Egbertie Van Buren Abeel
Egbertie (Abigail) Van Buren was christened in April 1738. She was the eldest daughter of William and Teuntje Vandenbergh Van Buren. After eight children, her father died in August 1752. Her family lived near kin in the East Manor near (but probably on) Papsknee Island where her parents and some siblings were buried.
In November 1757, young "Abigael" married the slightly older Albany native Jacobus Abeel at the Albany Dutch church. By 1779, eight children had been christened in Albany where she was a pewholder and occasional baptism sponsor. At the time of her marriage she was identified as a single woman of "Papsknee."
