On July 16, 1896, at Southampton, St. Mary's county, Md., KATE ELIZA, eldest daughter of Ann Maria and the late Dr. James Waring, and grand daughter of the late Gov. James Thomas. A noble woman, gifted with rare intellect cultivated by association and study -- a heart warm, tender, and true -- a spirit of self sacrifice that is learned only in treading the footsteps of Him she served so faithfully. The truest monument to her will be found in the memory of the many to whom her life was a benediction and a comfort. Saint Mary's Beacon, Leonard Town, Maryland, August 6th, 1896
