Pieter Quackenbosch b. about 1614 in Holland, the founder of Quackenbush family in America, was a brick maker in Albany, New York. Also known as Pieter Quackenbosch, Pieter Bont and sometimes as Pieter (or Piet) Bout. He probably left Holland for New Netherland in May of 1653 aboard the ship Graft. He came with his wife Maritje, son Johannes, born about 1642, son Wouter, born about 1644, son Reynier, born about 1652, daughter Maritje, born about 1640, and daughter Nelletje, born about 1650. Three more children born in Albany were daughter Annetje, born about 1658, daughter Magdalena, born about 1660, and daughter Jannetje, born about 1663. There were several Reyniers in the third generation, as the original Reynier's sons named their sons Reynier after their father.
