Folder 22 H. H. Brackenridge Family Agreement, September 11, 1813

This document consists of three separate entries spanning fifty-three years. First is Hugh Henry Brackenridge's September 11, 1813 agreement to pay an annuity to support his sister-in-law Mary and family in the case of John Brackenridge's death. Second, on the reverse side of the page is an accounting of annuity money paid to Mary and accounted for by Catherine Brackenridge, documenting funeral and other expenses in connection with the July 16, 1826 death of Mary Brackenridge. Catherine Brackenridge was the daughter of John Brackenridge, Hugh Henry Brackenridge's brother. Third, on December 22, 1866, H. H. Brackenridge's son, Alexander Brackenridge, wrote a letter on a portion of the original annuity agreement to William McCullough Darlington offering this document as the Hugh Henry Brackenridge autograph that Darlington had earlier requested for his collection.
