"Miss Carrie Bean" was depicted on the cover of the March 23, 1861 "Leslie's Illustrated" attending Lincoln's Inaugural Ball.

She was referenced in a statement by John T. Ford (the Owner of "Ford's Theater"), in the National Daily Intelligencer, April 29, 1865, that: "On the morning of April 14, 1865, it was fully 11 A.M. when John Wilkes Booth came from his chamber and entered the breakfast-room at the National Hotel, Washington. He was the last man at breakfast that day; one lady only (Miss Carrie Bean) was in the room, finishing her morning meal. She knew him and responded to his bow of recognition."

"Miss Carrie Bean" is named by the Milwaukee Daily Sentinel, June 14, 1865 as "present at General Grant's arrival at West Point".

After the Civil War, she married John Russell, who was a U.S. Navy Sailor.
