Alida Shuyler married Robert Livingston (1654 ~ 1728) and Gilbert was their son. Gilbert married Cornelia Beekman (1695 ~ 1742) and had a son, James Livingston. Catherine Beekman had inherited a portion of the Beekman Patent lands fron her father upon his death. Gilbert took control of the property upon his marriage to Catherine. The land covered under the Beekman Patent bordered on the Rombout Patent which was owned by Francis Rombout
