About Marretje Symens

From Jacob Barentsen Cool was the son of Barent Jacobsen Cool and Marritje Leenderts De Grauw. [1] He married Marritje Simons. Marritje was baptized 12 October 1632 in the Nieuwkerk (New Church), Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands to Sijmon Floriszen and Claertje Arents. [2] She had four sisters, Lijsbet, Machtelt, Marij (who probably died young), and Jannetje, and three brothers, Floris, Arent (who probably died young), and Arent. She seems to have arrived from the Netherlands as an indentured servant to Pieter Pietersen Harder "in the city of New Amstel, on the South River". Evert Pels, the husband of her sister Jannetje (see the Evert Pels family), paid for the remainder of her indenture in 19 February 1659. The Cools lived in Wildwyck (now Kingston, Ulster, New York) where he worked for Juriaen Westfael, a farmer, and Marritje also worked, probably as a laundress. They moved to New Amsterdam (New York City) in 1667, where Jacob became a “porter in the Weigh house” and a “beer and wine carrier” like his father. By 1689, they had returned to Ulster County, where Jacob took an oath of allegiance.
