Elizabeth Brooks Hilton
Probably in 1753, she married an individual named William Hilton. By 1768, at least seven children had been christened at Albany churches - including St.Peter's where she was a regular baptism sponsor. Her slightly older sister married Albany resident Petrus Hilton a few years later.
Called the "wife of William Hilton," Elizabeth Brooks Hilton died in December 1812 at the age of seventy-nine. Perhaps, she was the woman born in 1727 and married to William Hilton about 1753.
