Sarah Angelica (Ann) Singleton1

F, #12076, b. between 1814 and 1816, d. 19 October 1855
     Sarah Angelica (Ann) Singleton was born between 1814 and 1816 in South Carolina.1 She married firstly David English in 1832. Tradition has it that she left David English after a gunfight that resulted in the death of her brother Joseph and two of David's brothers and she remarried after David's death. However a more probably account is to be found in Tyrone Power's Impressions of America during the years 1833, 1834, and 1835, Vol. II. pp. 221-223, where he writes "My next illustration is of a kind so little in keeping with the year 1835, that it would be a better story if dated from the debateable land, anno Dom. 1535. The hero of the fight I am about to narrate is as fine a specimen of an old Irishman as ever I met with, and I have seen him frequently: his name is Robert Single- ton, and his residence is Baldwin county, in this State. It appears that Mr. Singleton had lent to a Mr. English four or five negroes, whom at a certain time he claimed, according to agreement, and took back to his own place: hence arose a dispute as to the right of possession ; which dispute the sons of Mr. English decided upon settling in a right border fashion. Accompanied by three of their white neighbours, and three of their father's slaves, the two Englishes repaired to the plantation of Mr. Singleton. He was absent; but they surrounded the house, and, after a resistance on the part of the slaves, which cost one of them his life, the number claimed were made prisoners, and marched off for the country of their captors. Meantime, a lad who had escaped from the house on the first attack, found, and communicated the surprisal and the result to his master, Mr. Singleton, who, accompanied by his eldest son, without a moment's hesitation put spurs to horse, and took the line of country likely to cut off the retreat of the enemy. Early on the next morning, July 4th, the Singletons came upon, a bridge they knew the Englishes must cross; and, not discovering new tracks, decided to halt here: they had not waited half an hour, when the other party came in sight. A parley was called. Singleton, senior, declared himself and son resolute to maintain the bridge against all comers, unless his slaves were restored. The elder brother, W. English, begged the Singletons not to fire, as they would surrender the negroes: at the same time, the party alighted; but as Singleton turned his head to desire his son to stand fast, he received a shot in the left shoulder; and, on a second, saw his son fall dead across his feet. Clapping his gun to his shoulder, he shot David English through the brain ; a barrel was at the same moment levelled against him by Wm. English, but snapped: again he called on Singleton not to shoot; but he this time called in vain. Taking up his son's loaded piece, he shot his adversary whilst in the act of stooping to lift his dead brother's rifle. One more shot was discharged from the English party, and Singleton received a second ball in his side. The assailants then fled, leaving the resolute old planter master of the field, with his eldest son, a young man of the best habits, dead at his feet. His wounds did not prevent his collecting his negroes after the flight of his enemies; he then walked back half a mile to where he had left his horse, mounted, and rode home, although upwards of fifty years of age. Mortification was for some time apprehended; but he at last recovered perfectly, and was, when I left Mobile, in robust health. The detail of this affair, as it stands in the journal, is concluded by a regular list with the names of killed and wounded; but not one word of comment. It is now in my possession, and the account may be relied upon as authentic in every particular." Sarah Angelica (Ann) Singleton married secondly Dr. Francis Lewis Sewall, son of Lewis Sewall and Elizabeth Howard Wailes, on 6 December 1838 at Clarke County, Alabama.2 Sarah Angelica (Ann) Singleton died on 19 October 1855.1

Margarita Van Slechtenhorst1

F, #5407, b. 1628, d. 11 January 1711
     Margarita Van Slechtenhorst was born in 1628 in Nykerck, Holland.2 She was the daughter of Brant Arent Van Slechtenhorst and Aeltje Van Wenkum.3,2 Margarita Van Slechtenhorst married Philipse Pieterse van Schuyler, son of Peter Diercks and Geertruyt Philips van Schuyler, on 22 December 1650 in Rensselaerswyck, New York.2,4 Margarita Van Slechtenhorst died on 11 January 1711 in Rensselaerswyck, New York.2,5

She came to New Netherland with her parents in 1647 and came of age in Rensselaerswyck where her father served as director of the colony.
Philip Pieterse Schuyler was an immigrant carpenter who, following the marriage, became one of the leading traders of Beverwyck/Albany. The marriage produced twelve children between 1652 and 1672. Eight of those offspring went on to establish the Schuyler family in Albany and beyond.
By the 1660s, these Schuylers were established in a new house on upper State Street. Before his death in 1683, Philip Pieterse had stretched the Schuyler family holdings by acquiring property around Albany and beyond.
A widow at age 55, by virtue of their joint will filed in 1683, Margarita Schuyler assumed control of her husband's extensive estate. From her Albany house and at the farm known as "the Flats," Margarita continued her husband's business and sat as the matriarch of early Albany's foremost family. Her children included Pieter Schuyler - first mayor of the city; Alida, the wife of Robert Livingston; and future mayor - Johannes Schuyler. Her other offspring established themselves in favored locations throughout the region.
Margarita Van Slichenhorst Schuyler lived until 1711. For much of that time, she was one of colonial Albany's most prominent residents. This active widow participated in business, landholding, and was an active member of theDutch Church. Surrounded by family and supported by a number of slaves, this able women's life was full and advantaged.
Her will, filed in 1707, identified her as a "sometime ... Albany merchant" and mentioned the real and personal estate she had acquired since the death of her husband. This seventy-nine-year-old widow had the presence of mind to circumvent English inheritance laws when she divided the Schuyler estate equally among her eight surviving children and their heirs.2
