Notes for Anna SIPPLE

Source; unpublished manuscript written by Madison Stathers ca. 1935

Anna Sipple was a remarkable woman. During her lifetime, she introduced into the Furbee family an element of culture and an appreciation of the better things of life, such as it has seldom enjoyed since her day. Born to a life of wealth, luxury, and ease, she inspired in her husband and children sentiments which can be traced down to the present day.

In her will, a most remarkable document, made November 14, 1785, she speaks of herself as 'being on sick bed, but of sound and perfect understanding. It closes with this: "Item (I) will also that all my Negroes may and shall be their own free people to act and deal for themselves'. This will was probated on or about December 20, 1785, which marks approximately the date of her death.
