“A Mother Lost and Found.” Washington Post, 15 April 1878, p. 4.

“The family of Mr. T. B. Marche, of 511 A street southeast, were much exercised on Saturday by the sudden disappearance of old Mrs. Marche, who is over eighty years of age and quite feeble. At 5:15 the matter was reported at the Eighth precinct station house and a description telephoned to all the stations. About 7 P. M. the old lady was found by officer Harvey on Aqueduct bridge and taken to the station. The family was notified and soon arrived with a carriage to take the wanderer back. The meeting of the mother and daughter was quite affecting.”
