Jannetje Bleecker was born early in 1673. She was the daughter of New Netherland pioneers Jan Janse and Margarita Van Woert Bleecker.

In December 1698, she married John Glen, Jr. at the Albany Dutch church. By 1706, three of her children were christened in Albany where she was a longtime church member. Her family was small due to the untimely death of John Glen, Jr. in September 1706. At age forty-three, her childbearing days probabaly were over. However, unlike many younger widows, Jannetje Glen did not re-marry[1].

Despite having young children to raise, she remained the head[2] of their Pearl Street household for many years. Her second ward home was located close to those of her father and brother.

Jannetje Bleecker Glen died in January 1755 and was buried beneath the Dutch church in Albany.
