Re: The Official Married Names Thread

Thanks Jimbo. I was unable to come up with an exact date of marriage. I think we can safely date it to 1947 however, as she stopped playing tennis after 1946 (until popping up briefly as a Mrs in 1952) and the article you cited mentioned she met her husband in 1947.

I was able to find places of birth and death.


United States
Born 8 October 1910 in Hungary
Died 15 May 1995 in Pompano Beach, Florida.
Married Rudolph Ellissen (1910-1992), circa 1947

Active from 1931-1946, then briefly in 1952 as Mrs Ellissen.

Passenger ship records indicate she came to the US with her family in 1923. She was good enough to appear at Forest Hills in 1946, her last year of active tennis.
