Eunice Rawson Packard
Eunice Rawson was the wife of Yankee newcomer Isaac Packard. Family-based resources tell us that she had been born in December 1744 and was an older daughter in the large family of David and Martha Dyer Packard of Milton, Massachusetts.
By 1790, these Packards had settled in Albany where Isaac Packard died in 1795.
In 1800, the household of "Eunis Packard" was configured on the second ward census. At that time, her household included two adolescent girls, and two adult women. In 1799 and in 1802, her personal property was valued within another second ward dwelling probably on Pearl Street.
Eunice Rawson Packard died in November 1824 and was buried in the First Presbyterian burying ground. Later, her remains relocated to Albany Rural Cemetery. This long-time Albany resident had lived almost eigthy-nine years.
