Louisa Hasbrouck, the third daughter of Levi and Hylah
Hasbrouck, was born on August 20, 1831. Like the rest of her
siblings, Louisa’s early education started with tutors at home.
Later, she probably attended the Poughkeepsie Female
Collegiate Institute (founded in 1848). Louisa never married.
She lived her entire life at Locust Lawn.
Louisa Hasbrouck died in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. on November
21, 1867 while staying with her sister Ann Bevier Hasbrouck
Innis. She was 36 years old. It is likely that Louisa died of
“Death does not often call from us one who had stronger and sweeter ties
to bind her to earth. Her position was not merely enviable because every
earthly comfort that this world’s goods can confer was hers, but she was
singularly blessed with a flow of priceless love which most deeply mourns
that its dear object has been removed.”
