Conrad Gansevoort, son of Dr. Pieter Gansevoort, MD and Garritje Ten Eyck, was born at Albany, Albany Co., New York, 15 March 1761.1 He died at Bath, Steuben Co., New York, 9 August 1829,1,2 and was buried at Albany Rural Cemetery, Lot 77, Sec. 84, Albany Co., New York.2

Conrad married Elizabeth Roseboom, daughter of Lt. John H. Roseboom and Susannah Veeder, at Albany 28 November 1791.3

Conrad was a member of Isaac DeForrests Company in Col Jacob Lansing Jr.'s regiment, First Albany City militia. He was commissioned 20 October 1775, made ensign 3 Mar 1780, and second lieutenant 20 June.

In or about 1785 a general store was set up by the firm of Gansevoort & Fondey, and Conrad is probably the Gansevoort who was senior partner. By 1800 (per the census), he was in Canajoharie, Montgomery Co., New York, where he had a mercantile business in the area later set off as Minden, with a store and house on a knoll at the foot of Sand Hill and was a very respected citizen and businessman. The Reformed Dutch Church of Canajoharie was erected on Sand Hill in 1750, about a mile west of Fort Plain. Conrad had the only cushioned pew in it.

He retired and returned to Schenectady in 1812 and removed to Albany in 1816.4,5,6
