      #l044 - CATHARINE, daughter of #l033 — Johannes and Maria Bogardus

      She inherited some extensive holdings in the Holland Patent in the Hoosic Valley from her grandfather #3 Gerrit Teunisse, who was one of the Patentees. She married Bernardus Bratt, a member of one of the old Dutch families of New York. The Bratt name, like many others, went through numerous changes and some of the descendants are known as Bradt or Brodt.

      Being in possession of these Patent holdings, Bernardus became quite prominent and was known as "The Patroon". It was said that some of the officials became a bit jealous of his prominence and prosper ity and tried to harrass him politically. The following excerpt was copied from the Minutes of the Board of Aldermen of Albany, August 23, l742:

      "This Board appointed Gerrit G. Van Denburg and Johannes Van Vechten to go with The Jury to view the premises in the action of the Corporation (of Albany) against Bernardus Bratt and that they hire a "Battoe" -- and hands to carry up some evidence, necessary for The Jury and they are to gett provisions at Simon Daniel's for which they are to be paid and likewise for their trouble, what is reasonable."

      However, there was nothing in the record regarding the findings

      of The Jury. So we assume "It was just one of those things".
