In August 1863, shortly after Union General Thomas Ewing issued the infamous Order No. 11, she, her 10-year-old sister, plus Susan Womacks and other female relatives of Quantrill's men were imprisoned in a building at 1409 Grand Avenue in Kansas City that was owned by George Caleb Bingham and rented to the Union Army. On August 13, the building collapsed, killing her, Susan Womacks and two other women. A week later, on August 21, Quantrill's band of partisans sacked Lawrence, Kansas in a brutal reprisal.
