Patience Wing, daughter of Abraham Wing and Anstice Wood, was born in 1751 at Quaker Hill, Dutchess, New York. Two sources give her birth date as 6d 9m 1751 [6 Nov 1751]. An alternative birth date is given by the vital records of the Oblong monthly meeting as 26d 10m 1751 [26 Dec 1751].
Patience married Phineas Babcock, one of the earliest settlers of Queensbury, who probably arrived there with Patience's father. About 1790, Phineas and Patience moved to St. Albans, Vermont where he built the first framed house in that area. His home was said to have been "adorned by shrubs and flowers planted by the hands of his wife, a woman of refined tastes and culture."
Phineas died about 1820 and Patience survived him by about 15 years. She died, age 84, at the home of her son-in-law, Willard Jewell, Esq. of St. Albans.
Other than a birth record, no other Quaker records have been found.
