Maria Bogardus Groesbeck
Maria Bogardus was born in February 1712. She was the daughter of Anthony and widow Jannetje Knickerbocker Lansing Bogardus. She grew up in a large family in the first ward home of a middling wood worker and city contractor.
This couple appears to have raised their family in an Albany home.
However, their marriage would not be a long one as Maria was dead by 1761 when her husband re-married.
After 1759, her pew seat (pew #63) in the church was transferred to another family member. Maria Bogardus Groesbeck had lived for less than fifty years.
