American socialite and the daughter of Samuel Chase, born Katherine Jane Chase. Her dad was a lawyer, the Governor of Ohio, a Senator and a member of President Lincoln's cabinet. From the age of 16 she acted as her dad's political hostess and was ambitious for his progress as a way to increase her prestige.

On 11/12/1863, she married William Sprague, a wealthy, ungracious alcoholic. They had three daughters, the youngest of whom was retarded, and a son who committed suicide as an adult. She began a ten-year affair in 1869 with a lawyer; the scandal effectively ruined his career. After she divorced Sprague, her financial settlement was decimated by her extravagance and she lived out her later years in faded and friendless poverty. She died July 31, 1899 in Washington, DC, age 58.
