Obituary - Mrs. General Van Antwerp - Mrs. Jane Van Antwerp, wife of General Verplanck Van Antwerp, of Iowa, and one of the Regents of the Mount Vernon Association, died on Sunday, last at Wistern, in Prince George county, Maryland, after a long illness. Mrs. Van Antwerp was the eldest daughter of the late John Van Ness Yates, a distinguished lawyer of Albany, and the grand-daughter of Robert Yates, Chief Justice of New York, whose wife was a Miss Van Ness, of Columbia county.
Soon after their marriage, her husband, Verplanck Van Antwerp, of Albany, then a young lawyer, removed to Keokuk, in Iowa, where he resided until the breaking out of the rebellion; when, having been educated at West Point, he entered the army as a Colonel of volunteers, and soon after received an appointment on the staff of General Blunt, in which post he was distinguished for his intelligence and gallantry during the Missouri and Arkansas campaign. In 1867 he received the appointment of Military store-keeper, United States Quartermaster's Department, and was ordered to San Antonio, where until recently Mrs. Van Antwerp resided with her family. Her eldest daughter, now deceased, was the wife of Hon. Geo. Williams, United States Senator from Oregon. Her youngest daughter married a son of Thomas Clagett, Esq., of Prince George county Maryland.
Mrs. Van Antwerp was a lady of great intelligence and genial manners, and in her youth was one of the reigning belles of the brilliant and refined society of Albany.
Mrs. Van Antwerp was one of the most efficient Regents of the Mount Vernon Association, and was only prevented by illness from attending its last meeting. The winter of 1866 and 1867 was passed by her in Washington, where, as elsewhere, she will be long remembered for her agreeable conversational powers and her many admirable traits of character.
