Johannes Quackenbush

by Stefan Bielinski

According to traditional sources, Johannes Quackenbush was born in Holland during the 1640s. He was the son of New Netherland pioneers Pieter and Maria Quackenbush. He emigrated to America with his parents and grew up in their home along the river to the north of the Beverwyck then Albany stockade.

During the 1670s, he married Machtelt Post. By 1695, the marriage had produced a number of children who were christened at the Albany Dutch church where he was a member and regular baptism sponsor.

His family made their home on Quackenbush property just north of the core city of Albany. In 1683, he was identified as one of those living "beyond the North Gate." His household including six children was configured on the Albany census of 1697. Two years later, he joined his neighbors in pledging allegiance to the king of England.

After that, he sought out more rural locations for his residence. He had a farm with his brother north of the Mohawk in what became Clifton Park and was said to be interested in land at Schaghticoke and Canistigone.

After 1708, his name dropped from Albany rolls. Johannes Quackenbush is said to have died at Canistigone in 1720.
