Jacob Dingman and Eva Swartwout, Columbia County, New York


Warning: Genealogy with no sources is mythology!

Although I have generations of Dingman ancestors earlier than the generation I am sharing today, I will not be posting any of that information unless I am able to find some documentation. I have written about the first three of my husband’s Dingman ancestors in hopes of making contact with Dingman researchers who can either provide documentation for these family groups or who can guide me to resources which will provide documentation.

Here is the third and last of the Dingman generations:

Jacob Dingman, no dates available, married Eva Swartwout, date unknown, but probably in Albany County, New York in the late 1690s.

They had four reputed children:

  1. Adam, baptized January 1699/1700, Albany, Albany County, New York
  2. Johannes, born 13 February 1703/4, Albany, Albany County, New York; married (1) Geesje Janzen, 16 November 1729, Kinderhook, Columbia County, New York (2) Marytje Muller, before 17 December 1749, when their first child was born
  3. Geesje, baptized 17 September 1706, Albany, Albany County, New York
  4. Gerardus, baptized 9 January 1708/9, Albany, Albany County, New York

Not only is the data on this family more sparse than on the other two generations, but I have yet another problem. While I have four children noted, FamilySearch only has baptismal records for Geesje and Gerardus!

There must be Dingman family researchers out there somewhere who have worked on this family in modern times.
