David Rottery's will, dated March 1801, called "Jane" his "beloved wife" and named here as principal beneficiary during her lifetime. It also mentioned their living sons, James and Robert.
Her name appeared with his on Albany poor lists as early as 1799. In August 1802, David and Janet Rottery were accorded eleven pounds each by the city council.
