"MISS BARRIOS DIES.
---
Daughter of the Late President of Guatemala Is Buried Here.

The funeral of Miss Consuelo Rayna Barrios, 21, daughter of the late President Barrios of Guatemala, who died at the Touro Infirmary Friday afternoon, took place Saturday at 11 a. m., with interment at Greenwood Cemetery. Miss Barrios has been the ward of President Manual Estrada Cabrera of Guatemala since her father's assassination. . Her only relative in New Orleans is her grandmother, Mrs. C. B. Wheeler, 1241 Prytania street, with whom she lived for the past year and a half.

Miss Barrios had been in poor health before she came to the United States, and she never completely recovered from an attack of Spanish Influenza last fall.

She was active in war work, and devoted much of her time to the British Services Club, of which she was a member."

Froggie: The Lost Waif -- By Maria F. Davis

"...It was in this city that Senora Reyna de Barrios lived as a girl. Growing up, her name was Lily or Lagerie Bates or Benton and because of her beauty, fair complexion with blue eyes, she was called Lily, after the flower.

It is true that a girl was placed in a convent in London, given the name of Consuelo de Barrios, who was brought there by a person from the office of the Guetamalan mMinister. It is known that Mrs. Reyna de Barrios went to the convent to visit this child, but involuntarily.

According to the Mother Superior, Mrs. Reyna de Barrios, when visiting the convent, was always accompanied by a nurse because this supposed mother always came drugged to a stupefaction degree and at no time did she show any affection for this girl." In 1911 she is listed as living in St Mary's Abbey Convent and St Mary's Abbey School, Mill Hill N W as a student in Hendon Middlesex England.

She is listed as a male in the New Orleans Louisiana Death records.
