Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Great-granddaughter of former NYC mayor among those killed in Texas plane crash”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The great-granddaughter of a former New York City mayor was among the six people who died in a small aircraft crash Monday outside Kerrville, Texas, just north of San Antonio.

The Texas Department of Public Safety released the names of the victims Monday night, one the great-granddaughter of former New York City Mayor William Jay Gaynor.

Angela Webb Kensinger, 54, the mayoral descendant, perished in the craft with her husband Stuart Roben Kensinger, 55. The two married in early 1989, according to a New York Times wedding announcement.

The notice mentions her connection to the former mayor, elected in 1910. He died in 1913, on the verge of seeking a second term after surviving an assassination attempt and clashing with Tammany Hall. He’s interred in Greenwood Cemetery.

Webb Kensinger, a Yale graduate, was also descended from Cornelius Vanderbilt, according to the Times announcement, but the connection is less clear.
