About Julia Edith Lazarus

Julia was the traveling companion of her brother, Marx Edgeworth Lazarus. She moved to New York to undergo a variety of "water" cures and other treatments for her nerves and in the process associated herself with persons of questionable nature. In 1856, she and Marx traveled to Paris, apparently for Marx to study medicine. There is evidence in some of her letters to her Uncle George Washington Mordecai that she may have married, or believed she was married, to a man named Smith, who was one of her so-called doctors in New York. She was constantly in search of a cure for a nervous disorder and spent a great deal of time in New York undergoing various questionable courses of treatment. From this point on, correspondence between Julia and her Uncle George concerned business only. Upon returning to America, Julia declined to live with the Mordecai's in Richmond, but instead moved from one Lazarus relative to another. She broke with her Mordecai relatives in 1856, and died in poverty in 1873 at the age of 43.
