Hendrick Van Wie, Jr.


Hendrick Van Wie, Jr. was born in June 1703. He was the son of Rensselaerswyck residents Gerrit and Agnietie (Anna) Conyn Van Wie. Both his parents died in 1746. He also was referred to as "Hendrick G. Van Wie."

In October 1732, he married Albany native Catharina Waldron at the Albany Dutch church. By 1754, their eleven children were christened in Albany.

Like many members of his family, these Van Wies appear to have lived in Rensselaerswyck. In 1742, his name was on a list of Rensselaerswyck freeholders along with those of his father and several kin. During the 1760s, his holdings in the West Manor were valued for taxes. He probably lived south of Albany near the farms of other family members.

In June 1765, sixty-two-year-old Hendrick Van Wie, Jr. was interviewed regarding the supposed will of Joachim Staats.

This Hendrick Van Wie probably died sometime thereafter.
