Death Anniversary of Anne Harriman Vanderbilt

On April 20, 1940,  Mrs. Anne Harriman Vanderbilt, wife of William Kissam Vanderbilt, passed away in New York.  Vanderbilt was her third husband – she’d previously been married to Samuel Sands and Lewis Rutherford Jr.

Anne and William were married April 29, 1903.  I found a photo of her in a New York newspaper, The Evening World.

I also one day, while doing some research in a Tennessee newspaper, just  happened upon her obituary.
