Anna Hewson Pruyn
Anna Hewson is said to have been born in January 1794. She was the daughter of Albany residents Robert and Elizabeth Geyer Hewson. Both her parents died in 1795. We seek information on this orphan's early years.
In March 1818, she was mentioned as a potential heir during the probate of a will that had been filed in 1788.
They are said to have moved their large family across the Hudson to Bath (today's Rensselaer) after the death of the patroon in 1839.
Anna Hewson Pruyn died in March 1841 at the age of forty-seven. Her husband passed on five years later.
