Elizabeth Schuyler

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Elizabeth Schuyler was born in Albany, New York back in 1757 to Philip and Catherine.  Her mother taught her to read and sew.  It is said she was somewhat of a tomboy growing up.  she accompanied her father one to the meeting of the Six Nations.  Once Benjamin Franklin visited the family while he was traveling. 

In 1780, she went to her aunt’s home in Morristown, New Jersey where she met Alex.  The attraction was immediate.  In December of that year they were married.  In January of 1781, Alex was off to serve in the military.  All in all, the union produced eight children, the last one born in 1802.  Alex died in 1804, she never remarried.  After his death, she defended him against his critics including James Monroe.  His works and writings can be found at the Library of Congress.  In her final she helped Dolly Madison and Louisa Adams raise money for the Washington Monument. 

Why you may not have heard about Elizabeth Schuyler surely, you’ve heard of her husband Alexander Hamilton, that’s right I’m writing about Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton.  She died in 1854, she was 97.

Your day is worthwhile when you make someone smile, so give the free gift of a smile today

I was just thinking what a pretty woman Barbara posted then read her comment. Politics it seems has always been dirty, money and power corrupt, and those who seek it often are willing to berate others mercilessly for their own ends.

Good morning James. The country she knew is no more. Bet she is rolling over in her grave if it has not been vandalized in the name of justice. Enjoy your day!

Good morning, James... that is certainly a ripe old age for those times. I had no idea about Alexander Hamilton's family... but now I do.

Good morning James - I haven't seen Hamilton like Barbara.  So I wouldn't know that.

Hello James - your posts often bring forth information I didn't previously know or had forgotten.  When that combines with the comments left by others, there is often additional insight gained.

It is truly sad that we don't very often hear about the woman behind the man...

I hope you're having a great weekend James Dray
