Birth: 1894

Death: Oct. 25, 1904
District of Columbia
District Of Columbia, USA

The monument for this grave was destroyed by vandals in the 1980s.

Portrait of a little girl named Marion Kahlert standing next to a broken column. Her proper right hand rests on the top of the column. The column is short, representing a short life. She is dressed in Victorian attire for young girls consisting of a knee-length dress with ruffles around the bodice, high-button shoes, and tights. Her long hair falls in ringlets on her shoulders and there is a big bow tied on the proper left side of her head.

Over five contributors have sent information regarding the story in The Washington Post published February 6, 2013 on page B2. The news article by John Kelly discusses the belief that Marion was struck by an automobile and killed instantly, becoming the first automobile fatality in the District. However, it is just a story as an examination of her death certificate by Lisa Rauschart, who chairs the history department at Georgetown Day School discovered. Marion O. Kahlert had been ill for six weeks and died of kidney failure. Her grief stricken parents published an annual memorial notice to commemorate her death for over 10 years.
