They Tried to go Public
A Mouse in Henry Livingston's House

By 1900, Henry's grandson, Henry Livingston of Babylon LI, decided that he was going to tell Henry's story, whether or not they had proof to go with it. Moore had been dead for 37 years, and attacking his story no longer seemed as dangerous to the family. Young Henry published his own newspaper on Long Island, and it was there that he published his grandfather's claim.

3rd Great granddaughter Mary Montgomery attempted to publish the story of Henry's authorship, but she was unable to get published.

Overall, the claims of their Poughkeepsie ancestor landed with a very silent plop.
