Petite, dark-haired, blue-eyed belle. Moved to Texas in the 1830s.s
Educated by governesses as was the custom at the time.
She was the unofficial librarian of her father's library in TX (the largest in Texas at the time.) It was in this capacity that John H. Reagan met her and fell in love.
According to Reagan's Memoirs, in Edwina he found the love and affection he had long done without. From her he acquired social grace and poise he had never known, and, together with her, he provided a Christian home for their four children.
She died in Richmond, VA while her husband, John H. Reagan was serving as Postmaster General of the Confederacy. She was buried in Palestine, TX.
Her death was the result of being impaled by a chair on which she was standing to hang drapes.
