"CHRISTOPHER JANSE ABEEL, the progenitor of this family in America, was born in Amsterdam,
Holland, in 1621. Both his father and mother fell victims to the great plague which scourged
all Europe in 1633, when he was twelve years of age...He was a magistrate of Albany and filled
other important positions, and in ordinary documents, as was the custom, he omitted the
surname, but to all important legal documents he attached the full name. He died in 1684... He
married Nov. 22, 1660, Neiltje Jans Croom (or Kroom), a native of Holland. They had issue:
Magdelena, married Gerardus Beekman; Marie, born 1666; married Garret Duyckinck; Johannes born
1667; Elizabeth, born probably 1670; married Evert Bancker."
