Cornelia Melyn was born in the Netherlands ca. 1627 and was baptized in the Nieuwe Kerk of Amsterdam on 27 Feb 1628. She was the eldest daughter of Cornelis Melyn and Janneken Andriaens Van Myert of Antwerp, Belgium. Cornelia came to New Amsterdam with her family ca. 1641. On 30 June 1647 she married Capt-LT Jacob LOPER of Stockholm, Sweden, in New Amsterdam. Jacob and Cornelia are known to have had at least two children during their brief marriage: Jacobus and Jannetje. Following the death of her first husband, she married Jacobus Schellinger (aka Schellinx or Schellinks), of Amsterdam, on 7 Apr 1653. Jacobus and Cornelia are known to have had at least 6 children during their marriage: William, Catalyntje, Abraham, Daniel, Jacob, and Cornelius. She died on 25 Feb 1717 in East Hampton, Suffolk, NY. Records of the Presbyterian Church of East Hampton state she was buried in that churchyard cemetery. This church was formerly located on the eastern edge of what is now South End Cemetery. So, one would assume that she was buried there. The specific gravesite is not known as no headstone has been found thus far.
