"The Albany Quackenbush familyis descended from Pieter and Maria Q uackenbush who came to NewNetherland during the 1650s. Their daughter, Corne lia, marriedbrewer and Albany mayor Albert Janse Ryckman. In 1697, twoQuac kenbush households were present in the city of Albany. In1756, only one Quac kenbush home was counted among the city's330 households. In 1790, Walter Qua ckenbush was living in thethird ward. But five Quackenbush-named households were countedin adjoining Watervliet including that of Colonel HendrickQuack enbush - who further developed the family plot and homelocated north of the city and along the Hudson River. A mapdated 1794 recognized "Quackenbush Str eet" leading from NorthMarket to the river as the center of this tract of la nd." *****SOURCE: e of birth: These Quackenbushes came to America in 1653.Half of their childr en were born in Holland, the others in NewNetherland. Cornelia was a middle child. No one has yet fixedher place of birth. Also, her name was not among the long listof early Albany people who became "naturalized" British subjects during the early 1700s because they had not been born withinthe British em pire. That omission might fuel speculation thatshe had been born in the Dutc h colony of New Netherland. *****SOURCE: Records of the Reformed DutchChurch of Albany, New York: Aug. 17, 1692.
