Anna married Morton in 1873, and they had five daughters and a son together. They were (in order of birth) Edith, Lena, Helen, Lewis, Alice, and Mary. Lewis died at the age of four months in London; also Lena and Alice predeceased their mother. She was Second Lady of the United States from 1889 to 1893 and often handled entertaining duties for the administration due to First Lady Caroline Harrison's illness and ultimate death. During this time, Mrs. Morton "became the leader of society in Washington, and there was never a more brilliant and popular leader than she. It was her innate graciousness, her innate tact, and her kindness of heart . . . which won her admiration and respect of all". She later was First Lady of New York from 1895 to 1897.
She died at her home on August 14, 1918 at the age of 72.
