Jane Louise Cameron

Los Angeles Herald, Number 146, 19 April 1916:

Married Ex-Convict, Dies Broken-Hearted
Syracuse, N. Y.. April 19.—Jane Louise Cameron, the 20-year-old girl who eloped from Auburn a year ago with an ex-convict, died in Detroit of a broken heart. She married a man just out of prison, confident that she could make him respected and honored, and all those who had known her well turned their backs on her. Cameron, who was 40, got work in Syracuse. They were ostracised there and at last former Warden Osborne of Sing Sing, the only friend of the ex-convict. sent the Camerons to Detroit. There the man got work, but his wife, still brooding over her family’s resentment, the friends who had sneered at her, wasted away quietly and died.
