Philip Van Vechten
Philip Van Vechten probably was born during the 1680s. He was not named in the baptismal records of the Albany Dutch church although he was married there and was an occasional baptism sponsor there between 1717 and 1724. Perhaps he was the child of Michel Dirckse and Maria Parker Van Vechten who was presented for baptism in 1687.
Philip Van Vechten was last mentioned at the burial of his wife in March 1734.
