Eliza Province Dexter
September 1791, both partners were confirmed in St. Peter's Episcopal Church. We are uncertain whether the marriage produced more than a duaghter.
Dexter was an apothecary who opened a drugstore in Albany in partnership with fellow newcomer Dr. Thaddeus Pomeroy.
Dexter died in August 1825. His will made her the sole heir and executor. After Dexter's death, she may have remained in Albany. Eliza Province, the widow of Samuel Dexter, died in October 1846. She had lived eighty-four years.
