Ann Lucy Cooley Sturdevant was born in the Spring of 1759, on 11 May, in Canterbury, Windham, Connecticut.
It is thought that Miss Ann was born a Brown, and married a Mr. Robert Cooley previously.
In any event, at age 36, around 1795, she married Samuel Sturdevant, a Revolutionary War Soldier, who had also come to Pennsylvania from Connecticut.
At this time, she was known as the "Widow Brown", and had five children, four boys and a girl. Her new husband, Mr. Sturdevant, also had several children from a previous marriage.
Together, Ann Lucy and Samuel had four boys and a girl, in that order. They were as follows: Peter Bent (1795-1861), Elisha and Elijah (twins) Elisha - 1796-1855 & Elijah (preacher) 1796-1872, John (a Major) (1797-1879), and Lucy (Smith)(1799-1866).
Samuel was minister and farmer for many years.
Ann Lucy died in the cold of winter, 14 February, 1836 at age 76. She lies to rest near Samuel in the Sturdevant Cemetery in Wyoming County, Pennsylvania.
