After her failed marriage to Allan Storm, Jane became associated with some of the most powerful men of the time; in the nineteenth century it was rare to find a woman who so influenced the politics of the day. From her writings in the New York newspapers, the politicians gauged public reaction.

However, these daring undertakings met more failure than success. Jane McManus Storm Cazneau, a beautiful young woman, whose spirit was not broken by failures, never ceased to gamble along lines far removed from staid conformity in her quest for an elusive fortune.
