Hendrich Albrecht, 1716 Austria, and Elizabeth Voland had two daughters, Anna, (Hannah) and Helena (Lena) who help form one big puzzle!
Lena 1757, married Obadiah Cooper, 1759, on June 8, 1781 in New Scotland, Albany, NY according to Dutch Reform Church records. This couple had a child, Cornelia born May 22, 1786 who must have died as a baby, since there is a birth record for another Cornelia to the same couple on Nov. 16th 1788, witnessed by Anthony and Cornelia Halenback (Obadiah's sister and brother-in-law?)
Cornelia married William Stalker of Albany County.
Lena's sister, Hannah married married Joseph Stalker, the parents of William which means that Cornelia married her uncle...I think!
Hannah and Joseph's son John Stalker married Clarissa Bradt and they had a daughter Mary Elizabeth born 1808 in Albany Co, who married Clinton Love who was born in 1804 in NY.
Now we find Jeremiah Cooper who married Lydia Cooper in 1827. She was born in 1803 also in NY.
Was there a tie between Jeremiah and Obadiah Cooper? And was there a tie between Clinton and Lydia Love? I suspect the Loves may have been siblings....but if so, who were their parents?
If anyone can untie this puzzling knot, I would greatly appreciate it!
