In 1715, he was identified as a private in an Albany militia company.
In 1716, he was appointed firemaster in the third ward.
His wife was named Agnietje (probably Conyn). Between 1719 and 1731, six children (including one Leendert) were christened at the Albany church. These Mullers were witnessing baptisms in the church as late as mid-1755.
Jacob Muller's wife was buried from the church in June 1759.
In 1767, Jacob Muller's property in the third ward was valued modestly. At that time, the name of a Jacob Muller also appeared on the tax rolls and militia lists for Claverack.
Sources: The life of Jacob Muller has not been assigned a CAP biography number. This sketch is derived chiefly from family and community-based resources. A number of references have begged us to deduce his wife's maiden name.
