    Notes 
    • They were married at her father's house in Philadelphia, PA by the Right Reverend Dr. White, the Episcopal Bishop.

      While Benjamin Henry Latrobe was working on the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal in 1805, the family was living in Wilmington, Delaware. They had a nurse, maid and housekeeper, Catherine McCausland, who was called 'Kitty'. They moved to a small log house on Ironhill near Elkton, MD for July, August and September 1805 as the children were subject to 'summer complaint' - dysentery which at that time was very frequently fatal. The house was near the canal where they could see both the Chesapeake Bay and the Delaware River 20 miles apart.

      On Christmas Eve, 1815 the Latrobe family was living in Washington when there was a sudden tragedy - the accidental death of the loyal Kitty McCausland. Benjamin Henry, Mary and Julia had gone off to church, leaving the two boys and Kitty alone in the house. The boys were upstairs when suddenly they heard a scream from below; they rushed to the kitchen and found Kitty moaning in a chair by the fire, all her clothes burned off and their remains still smoking on the floor. They rushed for help from a neighbor who helped to get her upstairs and into bed and gave her what crude first aid they could as the others returned, but it was too late and she died that evening. She had been with the family for thirteen years, and this was a grievous loss to all the family.
