DEAN, Julia, actress, born in Pleasant Valley, New York, 22 July 1830 ; died in New York City, 6 March 1868. She was the daughter of Julia Drake, an actress, who married Thomas Fosdick for her first husband, and later Edmund Dean, a well known manager of Buffalo and Rochester theatres. Her education for the stage was accomplished under his direction. She appeared first as Lady Ellen in "The Lady of the Lake," during 1845, in Louisville, Kentucky. Later in the same year she filled an engagement at the Bowery theatre, New York, and appeared as Julia in "The Hunchback." Her success was flattering, and in November 1846, she played the same part at the Arch Street theatre, Philadelphia. In 1855 she married Dr. Arthur Hayne, of Charleston, S.C. In May 1856, she sailed for San Francisco, and after an absence of nearly two years returned to the east with the proceeds of a very successful tour. She was divorced from her husband, on the ground of his failure to support her, and in 1866 married James Cooper, of New York. Her last appearance in New York was in October 1867. She excelled in juvenile tragedy and high comedy parts.
