On March 28, 1894, the New York Herald wrote a short blurb about the missing chambermaid:
Jennie Hanihan Still Missing
No trace of Jennie Hanihan, the domsetic employed at the Newsboys’ Lodging House, who, as told in the Herald, mysteriously disappeared after cutting off her hair, was found yesterday.
Among her effects was also discovered a tin-type of a young man, which nobody has yet been able to identify. Her mother will visit the Morgue to-day to see if her body is there. Meanwhile the New Jersey police have been asked to search for her.
(I posted about poor Jane Hanrahan a long time ago, an article titled “She Fled Without Her Hair.” I have several more scheduled to be posted this year.)
