    Becky Tredway's family had ancestors who were born at Fort Amsterdam.
    Born at the Fort Amsterdam in Manhattan, NY. Fort Amsterdam (subsequently named Fort James, Fort Willem Hendrick, Fort James (again), Fort William, Fort Anne and Fort George) was a fort on the southern tip of Manhattan that was the administrative headquarters for the Dutch and then British rule of New York from 1625 until being torn down in 1790 after the American Revolution. The construction of the fort marked the official founding date of New York City as recognized by the Seal of New York City. Guns at the fort formed the original battery that is today called Battery Park (New York). In October 1683 what would become the first session of the New York legislature convened at the fort. The fort was to change hands eight times in various battles including the Battle of Long Island in the American Revolution when volleys were exchanged between the fort and British emplacements on Governor's Island.
