Biographical Notes

She was a daughter of Kedar (#1639) and Chloe (#377). J.W. Case wrote that she married a man named Smith from Smithtown, had children, and died in Smithtown.

One piece of circumstantial evidence may corroborate Case’s remark. In 1879, the executor of the estate of two of Chloe's younger sisters, Keturah Derby (#1647) and Margaret Derby (, placed newspaper advertisements searching for heirs. One heir was identified as John Smith of Yaphank Almshouse, who may have been Chloe’s son.
