Elizabeth Simpson Pepper
In 1790, she probably was the other "free person of color" accounted for within Pepper's Watervliet home. By 1800, the Pepper household was enumerated in Albany's second ward and housed four free people of color.
"Eliz. Simpson" was buried from the Dutch church in September 1802. She probably had not lived fifty-years. William Pepper survived until at least 1817.
