Hannah Minthorne was the daughter of Mangle Minthorne, a prominent alderman of New York's Seventh and Tenth wards, and his wife Aryet (Constable) Minthorne. She married Daniel D. Tompkins in 1798. This portrait was painted in Albany when Tompkins was in his second year as governor, and was no doubt meant to hang in the governor's mansion.
