Abstract: Eight volumes of records of the Association for the Relief of Respectable Aged and Indigent Females in New York City which was formally established in February of 1814. From its beginning until 1838 the women of the Association met regularly and visited the dependent pensioners with gifts of clothing, groceries and cash. In 1838 they expanded their scope by establishing an asylum for the pensioners at 20th Street near 3rd Avenue. The NYC telephone directories reveal that they continued operating at an Amsterdam Avenue address until 1968.
