33. Maritjen KNICKERBOCKER
. On the 21 March, 1767, Christiana White requested that letters of administration
be granted on the estate of her mother Jane Dutcher, late of Salisbury, Conn.,
to her son Ruliff White. In the distribution of this estate the heirs of Kathren
Knickerbocker have a share, no names being mentioned (Sharon, Conn. Probate Records,
book 3, p. 190).
She was married to Ruliff WHITE on 24 May 1748 in Salisbury, Litchfield, CT.
(1) Their marriage is recorded on the church
records at Germantown, N. Y., in 1748 (full date is not given), he being "son
of Gasguve Weit" and she "daughter of Laurenz Knickerbocker."
There is no such name as Gasguve, but it is interesting to note that Gzysyn and
Mary Weydt have a child baptised 23 Nov., 1721, at Albany, N. Y., and that Gryphyn
Wyet stands as Sponsor: there in 1722. The settlement of the estate of Jane Dutcher
proves that Ruloff White was son of Joshua White and Christina Dutcher.
Maritjen KNICKERBOCKER and Ruliff WHITE had the following children:
145 i. Maritgen WHITE was baptized on 24 Jul 1748 in Germantown, Dutchess, NY. (1) Sponsors Benjamin and Catharin Knickerbocker.
