Uncertain family

The Martin Beekman that was a child of this Hendrick Beekman of Cologne, who married Gertryd Gomensbach, Mary Baudertius, and Alida Ottenbeek, is not the Martin Beekman that is currently attached. The Martin of that Hendrick was born in Hasselt and married Maria de Bois. https://archive.org/stream/distinguishedfam00aitk#page/n19/mode/2up

Biography

"Marten Hendricksz, from Hamelwaerde [Hamelwörden, near Freiburg on the Elbe, Hanover]; came on den Harinck and was engaged for six years as a farm hand at f100 a year, beginning Aug. 14, 1639. He was for three years and 8 ½ months employed by Michiel Jansz, and for two years and 3 ½ months by Cornelis Teunisz, from Breuckelen. From Nov. 1, 1645, to March 1, 1646, he was in the service of Antony de Hooges. He is credited with 26 weeks' board of Hans Vos, the court messenger, and in 1651 appears to have had an interest in the brewery, with Evert Pels. In 1657, he is referred to as Marten de bier craaker and Marten de bierkracker. He is perhaps the same person as Marent Hendricksz Verbeeck, who on Feb. 1, 1652, obtained a lot next to Jacob Simonsz Klomp, the rent to commence Easter 1653." [1]

Research notes

LNAB

Investigated because it wasn't even clear that he used the name Beekman, as opposed to Beeckman, but that's how it appears in Susanna's petition Quackenbush-118 13:32, 1 January 2017 (EST)

Beekman-58 and Beeckman-25 appear to represent the same person because: I believe these are the same person, with different spellings of the LNAB

I Believe Beeckman is the correct LNAB

Hendrickz-3 and Beekman-58 appear to represent the same person because: This is the oldest maternal ancestor in this chain in need of a merge into the NNS PPP. No tree conflicts. Thanks! The family was German and since there are not church records from Albany at this time, the name should remain Beekman.

I am going to restore the original mother from Maria to Gowensbach-2, who died in 1619, after Martin was born in 1617. The father's second marriage to Maria was not until 1621.
