Judge Klock and Martije were married September 30, 1784. The groom was 46 and the bride 26 years of age. Martije Beekman was Jacob G. Klock's seocnd wife. Their first child was a son, and Martije named him John Beekman Klock, for she was proud of her family name; and well she might be for had not her great-grandfather, William Beekman, come over to America with Peter Stuyvesant and helped settle New Amsterdam, now New York City?
