Laurens van der Volgen 1687-1742
My 7th great grandmother is Eechje "Eva" Classez born 1680 • Schenectady, Schenectady, New York, United States.
Her parents are " Isabelle " American given name and slave owner Laurens (Classez) van der Volgen (1687 - 1742).
I know that there were 2 other slaves, who were male. Laurens gave land and other property to Eva in his Will. I know that once taken from Africa that " Isabelle " was brought to the Netherlands and then to Albany, NY and that is all I know.
I am trying to track down her real name and her biological family.
