- Annie Egan appeared in the US federal census of 1 June 1880 in Manhattan, New York, at Nursery and Child's Hospital, 51st Street & Lexington Avenue identified as an inmate of the institution, occupation servant. Nursery and Child's Hospital and New York Infant Asylum were consolidated in 1910, creating New York Nursery and Child's Hospital. It maintained buildings at Lexington Avenue and 51st Street and at Amsterdam Avenue and 61st Street until 1913, when the Amsterdam branch was expanded and the Lexington branch was closed. Like its predecessors, New York Nursery and Child's Hospital focused its attention on the care of women and children. It maintained a lying-in hospital, a hospital for sick children, a nursery and home for foundlings and poor children, a boarding-out service to place children in homes, an obstetrical department for at-home care, and a training program for nurses and nursery maids. It also continued the tradition of annual charity balls for fundraising, which was started in 1856 by Nursery and Child's Hospital.
- She married Adolph Dexheimer, son of Louis Peter Dexheimer and Julia Penner, on 19 July 1884 in Manhattan, New York, with Charles E. Berger, MG, officiating, apparently in a civil ceremony. Witnesses were Frank K. Brocker and Mrs. Annie Thomas. At the time of their marriage, Adolph was employed as a cook, presumably by his father.
- In July 1884, Annie Egan was living in New York City, New York, at 209 West 27th Street according to her marriage record.
- In January 1889, Annie Egan and Adolph Dexheimer were living in Manhattan, New York, at 51 Macdougal Street when their daughter Amelia was born, and Adolph gave his occupation as tailor.
- The following appeared on 6 May 1891 in The New York Times: Recorded Real Estate Transfers, New York, Tuesday, May 5th. West Houston St, n e corner of Thompson St, 62x 19.2x; Adolph Dexheimer and wife to Albert Dexheimer and another, $4,200.
- At the time of her death Annie Egan was living in Manhattan, New York, at 647 West 152nd Street.
- Adolph Dexheimer became a widower at her death.
- Annie Egan died on 18 November 1897 at age 36 in Manhattan, New York, at Hood Wright Hospital.
- She was interred at St. Mary's Cemetery, Sprain Road, Yonkers, Westchester County, New York, identified as Annie Egan.
- Probably erroneously, the name of Annie's father is recorded as Patrick Barry in the record of her marriage to Adolph Dexheimer. Two possible explanations: (1) that her mother was first married to a Patrick Barry and Annie was the child of this union, although her name otherwise was recorded as Annie Egan; or more likely (2) that Annie was first married to a Barry and the record of her 1884 marriage incorrectly applies her married surname to the given name of her father Patrick Egan.
- Research Note: The mother of the three Manning granddaughters enumerated with Adolph and Kate Ball Dexheimer in 1910 likely was a daughter of Annie Egan, but further research is required. Unlikely a daughter of Kate Ball Lockman because of timing and Irish connections.
