Johannes Ouderkirk, son of Janse of Albany, came to Schenectady in 1695, and on the 20th of May of that year married Neeltje Class, widow of Hendrick Gardenier. His wife owned a lot of 100 feet front on the north side of Union Street, one-half of which is now included in the Dutch church lot, and the other half owned by Aaron Barringer, Esq. To give some evidence of the value of lots for some time after the burning and desolation of Schenectady, this whole lot, then vacant, was valued at fifteen beaver skins, or $48. Ouderkirk left surviving him four daughters. His descendants, it is to be regretted, are not on record.
