Jan's occupation is not clear but he may have been involved with transportation and delivery of goods and merchandise, possibly working with his brother Cornelis who was an official carman of Albany and owner of a sloop transporting goods between Albany and New York. Jan had connections with other men involved in river transport. He sues for non-payment of a delivery of shoes in 1684 and some researchers have argued that this may indicate that he was a shoemaker. 699,984
