Myndert Van Iveren
In December 1721, he married eighteen-year-old Ariaantie Wyngaert at the Albany Dutch church. A few months later, the first of their six children was christened in Albany where both parents were pewholders.
Like many family members, this Myndert Van Iveren was a blacksmith. In 1742, he was identified as a freeholder living in the second ward. In 1727, he was appointed firemaster. In 1756, his home was configured on a census of households in the city of Albany.
Myndert Van Iveren stated that he was "unhealthy" in September 1760 when he filed a will. It named his wife and children as beneficiaries. He probably died shortly thereafter. The will passed probate in 1773.
