Yes, Marie Foley was mentioned on the marriage of Robert Francis Von Spiegel - 20 April 1936
Robert was aged 19 so born 1917.

I am thinking that Marie Foley could not be the biological mother of both Sarah Ruth born abt 1901 and the mother of Robert Francis born 1917, as we have the marriage of Goldie Waterson in between. I tried to find the birth of Edward von Spiegel.

It would appear that James had been married more than once previously when he married in 1919., because Sarah’s mother in 1901 was Foley. . Then James married Goldie in 1905 and it was probably Goldie that he was divorced from in 1917.


There are as least a dozen or so stories in 1906 about this bigamy/marriage incident.

I was sent Goldie's death certificate for Apr 23, 1950 in Los Angeles. Says widowed but she was using her maiden name instead of Von Spiegel whom she married in 1905.

It appears Goldie went back to Watterson after the bigamy fiasco.

John Clayton Watterson's wife is sometimes written as Anna Sidney, sometimes Zigler, sometimes Sigler. There is a Goldie Waterson who died Apr 23, 1950 in Los Angeles, mother Anna Sigler, birthplace Ohio. Age 65 so born abt 1885.  I wonder if this is a daughter to John and Anna. Seems very likely.

William Watterson had a stroke in April 1896. His death notice in July 1899 states he died  at the home of his daughter, Mrs Wm Kling in Green township near Orrville.

You have found some very interesting articles, RJ137.Thank you very much. I suspected that something funny was going on in this situation and I did wonder about bigamy and you have proven it.  Good job. And thanks for the obituary for William and his wife. Also the article about Goldie and her arrest I wonder what that was all about. Thanks again for the wonderful detective work.

I think I have found the marriage of Edward James Von Spiegel, son of James B. Von Speigel and Marie Foley, in Syracuse NY in 1935. If so, Marie is remarried to a Mr. Cousineau. I am pretty sure it is the correct person as the witnesses are Marie Cousineau and R.F. Von Spiegel who would be Edward's brother Robert Francis who appears to be in the Navy. Edward is born 1906.

I believe this is James and Ora aka Marie (indexed as Corra)  in 1910 with children Ruth aka Sarah Ruth and Edward James.
