TRIVIA QUESTION ANSWER

The answer to the Trivia Question of January 21 is Lady Smuggler, Molly Sneden. Molly and her husband came to Rockland around 1745, and to support his living as a farmer, Molly operated a ferry service across the river to Dobbs Ferry. Their first home, portions of which date back to 1719, was a stone house near the river. During the Revolution, the Snedens sided with the British and refused to sign the Orangetown Resolutions. For this, they were forbidden to operate the ferry or any other boat on the river. Molly continued to ferry British soldiers across.
