The Gardeniers settled mainly in that part of the ancient county of Albany now comprehended in Columbia county.

But little is known of Hendrick, beyond the fact that at the time of his death in 1694, he was a resident of Scotac and owned a lot on Union St., next east of the Dutch church lot, and that in the settlement of his estate for the benefit of his widow and children, it was sold to Jillis Van Vorst.

The following year, 1695, his widow Neeltie Claase married Johannes Ouderkerk of Albany.

To show the change made by time in the value of house lots in Schenectady, it may be mentioned that Gardenier's lot, 100 ft. front by 200 ft. deep, was appraised in 1695 at fifteen beaver skins seewant or $16. (113-1)
