Born in Buffalo, New York, the daughter of Colonel James Morrison MacKaye, an Organizer of The Wells Fargo Express Company, and President of The American Telegraph Company and Emily (Steele) MacKaye, 2d Wife of James Morrison MacKaye

She worked in the Italian School of the Children's Aid Society and served on the board of trustees for the New York Medical College and Hospital for Women, 1872. She was also a member of the "Fraternity Club."

"Her nature gave hospitality and welcome to whatever needed human kindness; and all noticed the singular charity of her judgements, especially towards the unfortunate. One would call her by nature an artist, recipient continually of all possible impressions from beauty and pleasure, through every nerve and fibre, and living often in an ideal world of her own. Yet she harnessed herself to the practical work of life, and certainly few mothers ever devoted themselves in thought and act so wisely and thoroughly to their own children as she did to the beloved children of her husband." Charles L. Brace, 1879

A woman of extraordinary charm and brilliance, a pianist of professional ability whose friends and admirers collaborated on a book of commemorative tributes to her character and genius.
