The Cornelius Vanderbilt II 'cottage' in Newport RI is one of the grandest in America,
costing more than $7 million to build and it
is now owned by the Preservation Society of Newport. Be fore it was given
to them, it was rented out to them by the Vanderbilt's daughter, Gladys, who lived
in an apartment on the third floor. Her heirs still live up there
I recently got an email from one of my followers, and she had a very good question for me. The question was if I thought Alice Jr, Cornelius and Alice's daughter who died very young, died at the age of 5 or at the age of 9-10 (which is what she thought). Now I always believed it was 9, but I really would like to get some concrete evidence for her. Can anyone give me some evidence as to which age is the correct one?
