Noted as DC's oldest resident died after a stoke on Sunday June 10th in the Washington Post & Star at 3003 O St. Also noted that she was daughter of Margaret Dornin who they noted as a Governess after her husband died. Prominent Maryland family of Ireland noted. Manning/ Brent of Maryland
Article noted her initials first as W then as E,but E seems more likely. Mentioned married her husband [1849] William as a local Florist that died in '92 aged 76. Also mentioned another prominent DC name as Thomas J Stanton 1847 - 1933 as helping the 103 yr old with her affairs.

D.C. CERTIFICATE says Widowed, age 100 N.Y. widow, father of N.Y. mother of Ireland.

Note ***
Margaret Dornin noted as Jane's mother, is buried here in section 32 right next to the Kickham markers. It appears to me that her marker reads Died August 2, 1853 @ age 64. That would mean that her birth year would be aprx 1789. That would make her too young to have had Jane by 1802. Also it was rare that the wife would have been 14 years older than her husband William 1816 - 1892. I believe Jane was born closer to her husbands year of birth of 1816 rather than the year listed in the newspaper of the day. Further info found 1850 census lists her as age 30 her husband age 33 and M. Dornin [Margaret as aged 50 which is perfect for what my notes above described. Note of Mrs. Dornin's year of birth & death was sent to member that has her memorial listed along with photos showing dated.
Added note from Star says she was born Dec 26, 1802 in N.Y.
