Episode Ten: Dear Theodosia
Theodosia Burr was born to a wealthy and prominent family. When her mother died when she was young, she was raised by her father, politician Aaron Burr, who later becomes a subject in the musical Hamilton due to his controversial acts in US Government.
She marries Joseph Alston and has a child who tragically dies of malaria at 10 years old. Grieving her son and missing her father, Theodosia goes aboard the Patriot to sail to New York to visit her father, Aaron Burr. However, the ship goes missing after a storm hits the Carolina coast, and Theodosia was never seen again.
