The home became a center of activity, partly caused by visits from young men, and its proximity to Francis Barber's academy. One frequent early visitor was a boarder from that school named Alexander Hamilton. His oldest daughters (Sarah, Susannah, and Kity) were all lovely, and came to be known as the three graces. The height of social activity during this era was the wedding, at Liberty Hall, in April 1774 of Sarah to a young New York lawyer, John Jay.
For much of the time between 1776 and 1779 the family located in Parsippany for safety. Liberty Hall was frequently visited by British troops or naval forces, since there was a substantial reward for Livingston's capture. The family returned in 1779 to begin restoring their looted home.
William Livingston should not be confused with any of the other politicians who have the name of Livingston. http://politicalgraveyard.com/bio/livingston.html
