Series 1: The Schuylers & The Ten Broecks
Episode 4: The Next Generation

Within ten months in 1772, three new babies were born in the Schuyler and Ten Broeck households: Susanna Willinger Roseboom, Elizabeth Ten Broeck, and Rensselaer Schuyler. Susannah is the eldest surviving child––who we know of––of Britt and Will, who were enslaved by the Ten Broecks and Schuylers respectively, Elizabeth is the eldest surviving daughter of Abraham and Elizabeth Ten Broeck, and Rensselaer is the youngest surviving son of Philip and Catharine Schuyler.

Susannah and Elizabeth grew up in the same household: one of them enslaved, the other free. Rensselaer and Elizabeth grew up in the same social circle and were eventually joined in marriage. In the case of each individual, there are gaps in their histories. We’re going to explore what we know and what we don’t in this episode of Tales of Old Albany.
