Mary Virginia (Jenny) Wade, age 20. Killed while making biscuits in her sisters kitchen when a random bullet came through the door and hit her in the back and heart. She died instantly. As an addendum to this piece of information, in her apron pocket was a picture of her boyfriend, Jack Skelly, who unbeknownst to her had been killed a week earlier in Virginia while fighting with the Pennsylvannia Regiment. He is buried near her.
