Re: The Official Married Names Thread

United States
Born 14 March 1911
Died 22 January 2008
Married Melvin Maynard "Mel" Johnson, Jr., (1909-1965), between March 1934 and August 1936
Married October 10, 1934 in Brookline, Massachuesetts.

From the New York Times

And I can confirm that Rigollet played as Von Alvensleben after marriage-not sure why husband had different names, though I can put out a guess.

Perhaps he was a German living in Poland. Millions of Germans were forced out of modern day Poland after the war, and those who stayed behind often adopted Polish sounding names. So perhaps he was just reassuming his German name?
