Hendrickson, Catharine

Dutch, 1753 - 1835


Catharine Hendrickson was the only daughter of Daniel Hendrickson (sometimes called "Dominie" Hendrickson, due to his active role in the local Dutch Reform Church) and his wife, Catherine (née Couwenhoven). She had three brothers, Daniel, Cornelius, and Hendrick. Among her father's hobbies were music and painting; in the latter he was considered by family members to be quite talented, despite being apparently self-taught. He painted life-sized portraits of many family members; a large portrait of Catharine Hendrickson at about seventeen years of age (now in the NGA) is likely by his hand. Catharine never married, and remained her whole life at the family homestead established by her grandfather (also named Daniel) near Middletown, New Jersey around 1693. She was buried in the family graveyard on the grounds.
