• The oldest son Matthias was born about 1667 according to his gravestone inscription. His mother's name is unknown. The other son Daniel was born between 1669 and September 1671, the date he was baptized in the New York Reformed Church. Daniel's mother was Margaret Stuyvesant. She had been deserted by her husband, Jacob Backer, in about the year 1667. She was left with her husband's debts in a society which was still partly primitive. Fortunately for Margaret, she became engaged to Balthazar de Haert who had probably known her when Backer was in New York. She could not legally marry him until Jacob Backer was declared dead, as divorce was rarely allowed in the seventeenth century. It is apparent from two petitions filed by her creditors after Balthazar's death, and a land patent, that Margaret Stuyvesant never married Balthazar de Haert. If Balthazar's life had not been prematurely cut short in 1672, he probably would have married Margaret Stuyvesant.
