Three sisters; Bethia (HOPKINS) REYNOLDS, Sylvia (HOPKINS) PARKER and Cynthia (HOPKINS) HULET, flourished ca 1750's-1850's, RI, VT, CT, NY

Does anyone know anything at all about the following people?

Bethia (HOPKINS) REYNOLDS, (unknown dates but probably flourished circa 1750's-1850's, most likely in Rhode Island, Connecticut, Vermont or New York.)

Or her sister, Sylvia (HOPKINS) PARKER, again unknown dates or location.

They were both sisters of Cynthia (HOPKINS) HULET (1775-1860) who was married on 28 Mar 1793 in Foster, Providence, RI., to Aaron HULET (1755-1835.)

Aaron HULET was a revolutionary war pensioner and resided in and was buried in Shaftsbury, Bennington Co., VT. When his wife applied for her widow's pension after Aaron died her two sisters signed an affidavit to support their sister's application, however other than the names of the two sisters as "Bethia REYNOLDS" and "Sylvia PARKER" I have never been able to discover anything more on them.

Any help or ideas will be greatly appreciated.
