The David Vanderheyden I am interested in was a senior official in the
Government of India. He retired to England in about 1805. In his will he
refers to property in England and America. He also refers to an uncle in
England by the name of Dirk Vanderheyden. I have seen other references to
Dirk in England and to Dirk's brother, another David, in New York. I believe
that this Dirk and David could well be the sons of yet another David and his
wife, Geertruy Visscher of Albany. I am trying to make this connection.

David Vanderheyden

I think I recognize the name. Would that be Vanderheyden of Vanderheyden
Hall formerly known as the Troy Orphan Asylum? I have very little
on the facility, other than the fact that my great grandfather was placed
there by my great great grandfather. He remained there for two years until
he was
indentured out to a family in upstate NY.
