Gertrude was born on 19 February 1785 while James was born on 28 December 1786; they were both born in New York to Major Leonard Bleecker (1755-1844) and Johannah Abeel (1764-1810). Both the Bleecker and Abeel families were prominent families in both New York City and Albany and historical objects and papers connected to their family survive in such New York institutions as the New-York Historical Society and the New York Public Library.

Gertrude's and James' father, Leonard Bleecker, enjoyed a distinguished military career; he was not only a personal friend of George Washington but served under Lafayette and was present at the surrender of General Cornwallis. One of the original members of the Society of the Cincinnati, he was also a member of the New York Chamber of Commerce for nearly fifty years. His portrait was painted in miniature by the renowned miniature painter John Ramage and survives in the collection of the New-York Historical Society.

This painting was acquired from the collection of George T. Knight; Mrs. George T. Knight bequeathed to the New-York Historical Society at her death the Ramage miniature cited above, a silver tea service and sugar tongs, all originally belonging to Leonard and Johanna Bleecker. The connection between the Knight and Bleecker families is not known at present.

Edward Savage was born in Princeton, Massachusetts in 1761.
Self-taught it is believed he could have studied the works of John
Singleton Copley, to learn portraiture. His painting career began
in Boston in the mid 1770's, Harvard University commissioned him to
paint Washington's Portrait, for which he traveled to New York. In
1771, Savage was commissioned by John Adams to paint George and
Martha Washington. Later from 1791-1793 he learned the art of
engraving, which he studied abroad, possibly with Benjamin West.
Moving to Philadelphia in 1795 he accomplished a work that was the
pinnacle of his career, a panorama over 9 feet long of
The
Washington Family
, and charging admission to view it, because
it was the first panorama of the Federalist period, making it
unique; he also did an engraving of this prized work. Next, living
in New York till 1810, he ran a gallery with a natural history
exhibit, then, returning to Boston, and opening a similar gallery
there. In 1817, he died at the place of his birth, Princeton
Massachusetts.
