In 1679 Carsten Carstense De Noorman died in Albany, leaving two children, viz. Teunis, aged 19 years, and Elizabeth, aged 14 years.

The former settled in Schenectady, where he married Maritie, daughter of Pieter Jacobse Borsboom, and died in 1691, at which time his widow took out letters of administration on his estate; subsequently — on 26 Mar., 1692, she married Hendrick Brouwer and after his death in 1706 became an Indian trader.
