ChartsAncestors of Edward Ambrose Cooke
Divertje Wendel, daughter of Evert Janse Wendel and Susanna Truax, was born at Fort Orange, Albany Co., New York, in 1653.1,2 She died at Albany, Albany Co., New York, 10 April 1724.3,1

Divertje married (1) Myndert Janse Wemple, son of Jan Barentsen Wemple and Maritie Mynderts, say 1674;1,3 she married (2) Captain Johannes Sanders Glen, son of Sander Leendertze Glen and Katherine Duncanson, at Albany, 21 June 1691.3,1,4

The last two children of Divertje Wendel are problematic due to her age. For both she would have given birth in her late 50's. Schenectady names them Ephraim Wemp and Susanna Wemp. Without further research, the suspicion is they are likely to be grandchildren of Divertje.5,6
