Mrs. Alexander Hutchinson of Ireland or New York

This is a long shot. My James Harrison family has a __ Harrison, born late 1700s or as late as 1805 in Churchill, near Castleblayney, County Monaghan, Ireland. She married Alexander Hutchinson. She had maybe 12 brothers (among them William, John, Thomas, Joseph, James, Samuel, Arthur N., Andrew, Robert, and George, and two others) and definitely just one sister, Mrs. William Monahan. Mrs. Alexander Hutchinson is named that way in her brother Andrew's estate, a paper from Green-Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn, lot 3690, document [1548?]. Given that she was named by a brother in New York City and had some siblings in New York City, also New York state, and about four half siblings back in County Monaghan, Ireland, she could have been living either in New York City, the area, or in Ireland. I know nothing about her husband, whether he was Irish or an American. Her brothers and their children were Presbyterian, fairly well off, and several went into commodity shipping or ran groceries, so you see the socio-economic level was upper-middle class. In Ireland teh harrisnos were strong farmers, just below gentry. How would you research a woman for whom you know just the husband's name?
