Genealogical and Biographical Record




Conrad Mathys Houghtaling, "young man," and Tryntje Willemsz Van Slyk, "young daughter of New Albany," had first banns of their marriage announced in the Albany Reformed Dutch Church on 26 August 1688 (HSYB 1904). She was the daughter of William Van Slyk and Bieltje Nieffens (?) (Innes Getty Coll., NYG&B, 7:12). In 1699 Conrad pledged his allegiance to the English Crown at Albany (An-A 3:276). For nearly two centuries his descendants lived on portions of the original 3,500 acres west of Coxsackie that had been granted to his father. Beers (Hist. Green Co. 238f), Vedder (History of Greene Co. 68f), and the Reverend Delbar Clark (Ye Olden Time 5:12) have written accounts of court disputes over this property that occurred in later years. In 1720 Conrad was listed as "freeholder, Manor of Rensselaerswyck." He died in 1745.

Conrad's descendants will find much helpful information in the careful and comprehensive Hotaling Genealogy, a manuscript of the late Anna Hotaling deposited in the New York State Library at Albany. Unfortunately, this excellent record, the work of a lifetime, is not indexed, and is not documented by source references; but it contains an enumeration of thousands of descendants, well into the present century.

All eleven of the children of Conrad Houghtaling and his wife Tryntje Van Slyk were baptized in the Albany Reformed Dutch Church:
