About Jane Findlay Whiteman (Irwin)

From “The First Ladies of the United States of America,” by Allida Black. Copyright 2009 by the White House Historical Association.

When she [Anna Tuthill Symmes Harrison] decided not to go to Washington with him, the President-elect asked his daughter-in-law Jane Irwin Harrison, widow of his namesake son, to accompany him and act as hostess until Anna's proposed arrival in May. Half a dozen other relatives happily went with them. On April 4, exactly one month after his inauguration, he died, so Anna never made the journey. She had already begun her packing when she learned of her loss.
