He was the eldest son of Teunis Cornelise Slingerland of Albany. In 1699 he married Eva Mebie of Schenectady, where he settled, and between 1700 and 1723 had eight of his ten children baptized in the church here. It is supposed the family removed to Niskatha [New Scotland] where a Cornelis Slingerland was buried 3d Sept., 1753. His house lot in the village, 1706-22, was on the south side of State street, forty feet east of Water street alley and extended easterly probably to Church street. (146-1) He also had a lot on the east side of Washington street, now owned by Mrs. Buchanan.
