In this letter Hamilton Fish (1808-1893), one time Govenor and Senator from New York, and Secretary of State under President Grant, writes to former Senator from Delaware, Richard H. Bayard (1796-1868), regarding the geneological details of the Bayard family's relationship through marriage to the Stuyvesant family. The letter reads in part, “I find that a Sister of Gov. Stuyvesant named Anna was married to Nicolas Bayard. She was a widow in 1647 when she came to America with her brother...” The letter goes on to provide further details and Fish offers to keep Bayard informed about any further documentation he might come across.
