Ann Bevier Hasbrouck, the second daughter of Levi and
Hylah Hasbrouck, was born on March 11, 1827.
Ann was educated at home by tutors and later she attended
school at the Newburgh Academy. At the age of 28, she
married George Innis of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., a prominent
businessman (and three term mayor of Poughkeepsie). Their
wedding took place in the formal parlor of Locust Lawn on
May 16, 1855. To celebrate the event, a new Brussels carpet
was purchased for the room where it can still be seen in the
house today. Mr. and Mrs. Innis resided in Poughkeepsie and
had two children, Hasbrouck and Martha. This brother and
sister would eventually inherit Locust Lawn.
Ann died in 1906 at the age of 79. At the time of her death she
was living with her married daughter Martha Innis Young
whose home “Locust Grove” in Poughkeepsie was originally
owned by Samuel F.B. Morse, the painter and inventor.
