Daughter of Edward Brewster (1740-1775) and Experience Reeve (1744-1826) (Experience remarried Samuel Strong after Edward's death).

Anna was a dwarf and it was rumored that she entertained General Washington while he was quartered in Newburgh however, it would seem to be untrue. Several accounts, including her obituary statement, say that she politely declined the invitation to avoid "prying curiosity" and stay in the familiarity of her family.
