Birth: May 7, 1877

Death: Dec. 5, 1964
District Of Columbia, USA

Miss Sheridan, 87, was one of four children, including three daughters, born to Civil War hero Gen. Philip H. Sheridan and the former Irene Rucker. Never married, she was a long-time resident of Washington, DC, and had lived at 2251 Massachusetts Avenue, near Sheridan Circle, the site of Gutzon Borglum's famed equestrian statue of her father astride his warhorse "Rienzi". It was said that she, her twin sister Louise, and their elder sister Mary began each day by leaning out of their bedroom windows and calling out "Good morning, Papa!" in the direction of the statue, which had been unveiled in 1908. A devout Catholic, she was interred in the Sheridan plot in Arlington after a Requiem Mass at St. Matthew's Church, where her father's funeral had taken place 76 years earlier. Also predeceased by her younger brother, Philip Jr., in 1917, her mother in 1939, her elder sister in 1959, and her nephew, Philip III, in 1948, Miss Sheridan's survivors included her 87-year-old twin, who had also remained single, and at the time of her death, continued to reside at the family home on Massachusetts Avenue, and her niece Carlina Sheridan Glasgow McElroy.
