24 October 1826 – Anne Hesseltine Judson died at age 36 in Amherst, Burma (now Myammar). She was married to Adoniram Judson, America’s first foreign Missionary. Anne wrote the first Catechism in Burmese and translated the Books of Daniel and Jonah into Burmese. She was the first Protestant to translate any of the Scriptures – the Gospel of Matthew, into Thai. Her letters home were published in the American Baptist Magazine and as devotional books, inspiring and mobilising many into the mission field.
