Below is Albert II's will.
To date, we have found no evidence of a will for his father, Albert Albertsen, the immigrant.
The death date of the immigrant is also unproven
...he died after February 22, 1685 when he witnessed the baptism at Midwout of a grandchild:
"K [child]. Albert
O. [parents] Volkhert Hansz; Sara Alberts. Hackinzak.
G. [witnesses] Lucas Stephens; Albert De Lintwever; Cataline Hans."
and presumably before the Oath of Allegiance in 1687 as his name is not included.
Will of Albert Terhune (II), s/o Albert Terhune and Geertje Dircksdr (Denyse?).
