     Sytge Updegrave was born circa 1692 in Germantown, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. She was also listed as being born in 1684 in Europe, probably in Utecht in Holland but possibly at Krefeld. If she was born at this date her mother was Lisbet VanBebber, her father's first wife. It is also likely that Lisbet died giving birth for if Lisbet was the mother it was late in her life. She was the daughter of Herman Isaaks Opdengraff and Deborah van Bebber. Sytge Updegrave was also known as Psyche Updegrave. She married firstly, John Krey, circa 1710. Sytge Updegrave married Hubert Cassel, son of Heinrich Cassel, circa 1721.1 Sytge Updegrave was described by her brother-in-law Yellis Cassel as being such a noble, kindhearted woman and so devotedly pious that he began to think she was one of a thousand, whose equal could not be found.2 Sytge Updegrave died circa 1742.1 She was buried in Lower Skippack Mennonite Meeting-house Cemetery, Lower Skippack Township, Philadelphia County, now Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.3
