Bethune, George Washington, 1805-1862(?), Chapter 9: Mrs. Bethune's Associates in Memoirs of Mrs. Joanna Bethune.. Bethune, George Washington, comp.. New York, NY: Harper & Brothers, 1863, pp. 250.
Mrs. Chrystie was survived by her son, Albert Chrystie, Esq., who married Frances, daughter of the very distinguished Colonel William Few (one of the framers of the American Constitution, member of the first Senate of the United States, etc., etc., etc.), originally of Georgia, but, after his marriage with Catharine, daughter of Commodore James Nicholson, a resident of New York, who died August 7th, 1854, on her ninetieth birthday. Mr. Chrystie inherited, with a strong personal resemblance to his mother, her pious, retiring, benevolent, and zealous character. Mr. Chrystie, at the time of his death, was a greatly beloved elder of the Reformed Dutch Church of Hastings, upon the Hudson, a church he helped to found, and whose continued prosperity is a monument to his worth. "Having the refinement and polish of the [p. 85]circle in which he had always moved, with a heart of unaffected kindness, the only and unfailing source of true courtesy, he evinced, wherever he went, the bearing of a thorough Christian gentleman, and commanded universal respect." Mr. Chrystie died in 1856, in his 67th year.
