Hester was named as a beneficiary in her father's will made at Stanford, Dutchess CountyG, on 20 May 1795. She was left a sum of £200. This large sum, much larger than amounts left to her siblings, and a requirement in the will that her brother Samuel take care of her, suggests something special about Hester's circumstances.2
