  Gerrit Roseboom was born about 1665. He was the son of Albany founders Hendrick Janse and Gysbertje Lansing Roseboom.
  In November 1689, he married Maria Sanders at the Albany Dutch church. By 1704, their six children had been christened in the church where both parents were members and baptism sponsors. In 1714, the altruistic Gerrit also contributed to the building of St. Peter's Anglican church.
  Gerrit Roseboom was a merchant and a prosperous member of Albany's business community. He set up his home in the second ward where he served as constable, assessor, assistant, and then as alderman - beginning in 1709. While a member of the city council, he supervised a number of public construction projects. He also commanded a company in the Albany County militia. In 1699, he signed a community document pledging allegiance to the king of England. In 1720, his name appeared on a list of Albany freeholders.
  Gerrit Roseboom died in 1739 and was buried from the Dutch church. His wife lived two years longer.
