Judith Barret Hilton
Judith Barret was born in August 1740. She was the daughter of Robert and Maria Martin Barret. She was one of the older daughters growing up in a large Albany family. She lost her mother in 1754 and her father two years later. Perhaps the six orphaned Barret children were raised in the Southside home of her grandmother - the only Barret-named householder living in Albany at the time.
By 1769, she had become the wife of Albany native Pieter Hilton. She may have been married at the Dutch church in Schenectady. Several of her children were christened at the Dutch church in Albany where these Hiltons were occasional baptism sponsors.
Judith Barret Hilton would have been about seventy-eight years old at that time. We seek information on her passing.
