Daughter of Thomas Downing and Mary Lightfoot Downing; did not marry.
Recently a number of letters written to her between 1861 and 1863 from her brothers, Joseph B. Downing and William H. Downing, were discovered. The brothers, members of the 49th Pennsylvania Volunteers, describe their experiences during the first two years of the Civil War. The letters have been re-printed in a book, "Dear Sister", by the Uwchlan Historical Society.
