About 1725, he married the slightly older innkeeper's daughter Margarita Hogan. By 1741, five of their children had been baptized in the Albany Dutch church. However, this Albany native was a member of his wife's church, St. Peters.
Although he held no municipal offices, he performed contract work for the city government and was qualified to vote. Besides his sons, his enterprises were supported by slave labor.
His name last appeared on city rolls in 1779 - although he may have been dead by that time. Too old for actual service during the war, during the 1780s he was awarded a bounty right in conjunction with the Albany County militia.
His widow was identified as a head of household in 1790.
Sources: The life of Dirck Hun is CAP biography number 4774. This profile is derived chiefly from family and community-based resources. He probably belonged to an Albany militia company although no documentation has yet been found!
