  • Notes 
    • One of her descendants, in a tribute to her at her death, wrote one of the stories she used to tell. As a young woman riding to a grist mill in Peapack, NJ, she met General George Washington and soldiers marching to fife and drum music. The General, seeing that her horse was becoming agitated and might throw her, commanded, "Stop the music until the girl has passed."
