Her is her obit from Mariposa Gazette August 21, 1897:
Jennie Calhoun, beloved daughter of James Calhoun and granddaughter of T. J. E. Wilcox, was born August 16,1884 at Plainsburg, Merced County Co., and died August 12, 1897 in White Rock Mraiposa County, where her short life was passed. A few weeks before her death she embraced religion and was tranquil and happy during her trying illness and although friends sorrow to lose so sweet a blossom and devoted Sunday School scholar, yet our hearts are peaceful, knowing the fair young life is in happier land than ours. About six months ago the family were deprived by the hand of death, of a loving Christian mothers care. Little Jennie leaves a sister and two brothers to mourn her loss.
"Sleep on, beloved, sleep, and take thy rest,
Lay down thy head upon the Saviour's breast,
We loved thee well, but Jesus loves thee best-
Good night! Good night! Good night!"
Ellen Jeanette Wilcox Calhoun (1861 - 1897)
Note: Just shy of 13 years old at passing.
