I don't know anything about her either, but this is what I gather from the J-wikipedia.

He had three younger sisters. One was Yoshiko 芳子, or Chiyo千代.
The next was Toshi (or Hisa or Naga maybe) 寿. She married Odamura Inosuke 小田村伊之助 (later Katori Motohiko 楫取素彦), who was close to her brother. She died young.
The next sister was Fumi 文, later Miwako 美和子. She married Kusaka Genzui 久坂玄瑞, but he died young. She later married her sister's widower, Katori. I don't know when she died, but she probably took the name Miwako when her husband had a court connection 宮中顧問官.

妹・芳子(千代)、寿(小田村伊之助(楫取素彦)に嫁す)、美和子(初め文、久坂玄瑞に嫁す。後に楫取素彦後妻)

Thank you so much ,probably it will be Miwako at a guess as she was around longer .
This almost seems like it could be a remake of Kashin only from a female perspective .

It must be Shoin's sister Fumi, who was married to Genzui. They all appear in Lian Hearn's Bakumatsu historical novel, Blossoms and Shadows, published in 2010.
