  • Dr. William Pasteur died March, 1791. In his Will he mentions his wife Elizabeth Pasteur, his nephew William Pasteur, his niece Anne Smith, and his sister Ann Craig, wife of Thomas Craig. Mrs. Pasteur died in 1792 intestate, and the fact that her sister Mary Stith, who survived till 1816 was her sole distributee would indicate that any children which she and her husband Dr. William Pasteur, might have had, had pre-deceased her.
