Ann McNulty is quite a mystery to me. Very little is known about her. She married Mathew Ivory sometime prior to their first known child, Mathew Hayes Ivory's, birth in 1809. I have heard from family members, and see in online trees, that she was born in Germany sometime between 1765 and 1788, but I have never seen any evidence to support either the date or place of her birth. The identity of her parents also remain a mystery.
Ann became a widow on 13 March 1812 when her husband died of Typhoid Fever. She was left to raise two very young children. I do not know whether she had family members living in Philadelphia to help her during these tough times or if she was left to support herself and the children on her own.
Ann can be found in city directories in Philadelphia for several years after Mathew's death, but then she disappears from the directories in about 1817. I do not know whether she remarried, left the city, or possibly died around that time. I have searched in city directories for about a decade after her death and cannot find her.

before 1809 - Marriage
Ann McNulty and Mathew Ivory likely married before 1809 when their first known child, Mathew Hayes Ivory, was born. No historical record of Ann has been found prior to their children's baptismal records, but her husband was living in Philadelphia for several years prior to their children's baptisms, so it is possible and even likely Ann and Mathew were married in Philadelphia. - Last updated 19 November 2016
