So she was obviously very young when she took part in the Olympics in 1900, if indeed she turned up to play. What results do you have for her from the Olympics in 1900?
Hedwiga Rosenbaumová / Archibald Warden Bohemia/Great Britain bt Katie Gillou / Pierre Verdi-Delisle France

Unofficial Mixed Handicap Final
Andre Prevost / Helene (?) Prevost France bt Maurice Germot / Katie Gillou France
