Hilletie Bronck Williams
Hilletie Bronck was born about 1690. She may have been the daughter of Jan Bronck.
In June 1712, she became the second wife of innkeeper Thomas Williams - a widower with several children. By 1724, six more children had been christened at the Albany Dutch church where she was a frequent baptism sponsor.
Hilletie raised their large, combined family in Williams' Southside establishment. Her responsibilities may have reached beyond the domestic as her husband was frequently away from their home on business as attorney, sheriff, and Indian commissioner.
Hilletie Bronck Williams died in May 1758 and was buried from her church.
