Biography

Ann (Nancy) was inseparable from her sister, Maria), until Maria insisted on attending the Moravian Young Ladies' Seminary in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. When their mother died in 1802, Ann quickly fulfilled the role of caretaker, and hostess and manager of daily life at Bedford. Like her mother, she was an extraordinary gardener.

Upon the death of their beloved father, Ann moved with Maria to New York City. They were once again inseparable and together, were very dedicated to charities including the Episcopal Church, Sunday schools, family members and others less fortunate and in need.

Remarkably, they died within eight days of each other in 1856.
