Myndert Roseboom, son of Henderyck Yannsen Rooseboom and Gysbertje Lansing, was born say 1675.1 He died at Albany, Albany Co., New York, 20 October 1722,2 and was buried there, 22 October 1722.2,3

Myndert married Maria Vinhagen, whose parents are not known (or are untraced), at Albany say 1706.2,3

Myndert was received into the church as a communicant, 9 Apr 1676 [86?], four years after his brother Gerrit. He was the youngest, but old enough to sign the Oath of Allegiance in 1699. He was sponsor at two baptisms in 1706, appearing appropriately as the last of the brothers. He held some public offices or positions: in 1702, 3, & 5 he was constable of the second ward, high constable, and juryman. He was a freeholder in 1720, and was one of the deacons named in the Act of Incorporation of the church that year, and was again named as deacon the next year.

His marriage was not recorded, at least not in Albany, even though he was shown as a sponsor twice in 1706, and his first child is shown baptized in 1707.2
