    Johannes married Cathalyntje Lansing on 20 Jun 1770. Cathalyntje (daughter of Jacob Lansing and Huybertje Yates) was born on 1 May 1753. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 5.  Cathalyntje Lansing was born on 1 May 1753 (daughter of Jacob Lansing and Huybertje Yates).

    Other Events:

    • Baptised: 6 May 1753, Reformed Dutch Church, Albany, Albany, New York

    Notes:

    As of 19 Jan 2019, she is identified on Wikitree as a daughter of Pieter Johannes Lansing (1721-1807) and Elizabeth Wendell (1723-1761), which would give her a descent from both the Schuyler family (of the three sisters made famous by Hamilton) and the van Rensselaer family, patroons of the Rensselaerwyck manor.

    But a sidebar to that Wikitree page, attributed to Ellen Smith, notes that the parentage assigned to her by Munsell (citation details below), which we follow, is as plausible or more plausible for several reasons. Of their first three children, Elizabeth and Jacob were the names of Johannes Van Woert’s parents, and Hubertje was the name of Cathalyntje’s mother, assuming Cathalyntje’s parents were as shown here. And assuming the same, two of this couple’s children’s baptisms — those of Jacob and Willempje — were witnessed by Jacob Lansing and his wife Willempje, Jacob being one of Cathalyntje’s brothers.

    Children:
    1. 2. Jacob Lansing Van Woert was born on 9 Nov 1773 in Albany, Albany, New York; died on 21 Jul 1829 in Pittstown, Rensselaer, New York; was buried in Millertown Cemetery, Pittstown, Rensselaer, New York.
