John C. Ten Broeck's Obituary: Dec. 26. (1822) — John Ten Broeck died, aged 83. He was one of the patriots of the revolution, and together with Abraham Yates, formerly mayor of the city, were the last representatives under the colonial government from the city and county of Albany. Mr. Ten Broeck was also a member of the convention of this state, which in 1777, framed our constitution. During the arduous struggle of the revolution he held several responsible stations, and discharged the duties thereof with fidelity. After the organization of our state government, he at different times received distinguished marks of public confidence; and in every situation in which he was placed, he acquitted himself as an upright and meritorious public servant
