About William I Bowen

Mohawk frontier: the Dutch community of Schenectady, New York, 1661-1710 Excelsior Editions Series AuthorThomas E. Burke, Jr. Edition2, illustrated, reprint PublisherSUNY Press, 2009 pg. 185 The developement of a provincial export trade in wheat and other grains during this period heightened the economic advantage of land ownership. But opposition to the effort of Jan Jansen Jonckers (van Rotterdam) and Andries Albertsen (Bradt) to acquire property near the village (in 1671) had already indicated that some persons were to be more successful than others in exploiting the lands that surrounded the community. pg. 206 Several persons of English descent also married and settled in Schenectady during this period: William Bowin m. 1702 d. of Jan Jansen Jonkers Mannasch Sixberry m. 1696 d. of Jan Jansen Jonkers Many of these men pg. 207 were soldiers stationed on the fronier, and it may be that such individuals helped to fill a void created by the removal of population from Albany County after 1689. Jan Jansen Jonkers (van Rotterdam) for example saw two of his unmarried daughters provided for in this manner.
