Oscar Lewisohn

(click here for details on Oscar's family - the Lewisohn's.)

Married to Edna from June 4th, 1907 until his death on December 3rd, 1917. Oscar was six years younger than Edna and he was the one man she loved. Oscar was an investor, a race horse owner and very wealthy. They were married at the Register's Office in Windsor, Berkshire, England. Their honeymoon was spent motoring across France, Switzerland and Germany.
Edna retired from the stage once she married and lived the life of a socialite, giving much of her time and money to charitable causes.
Oscar died after surgery for possible intestinal cancer at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York.
The last words Oscar spoke, as he lay in his hospital bed with Edna by his side, were "Edna, ten years of happiness..."  (various newspapers published this).

Seated on left is Edna's mother, seated on the right is the matron of honour - the actress Gertie Millar.
Holding Gertie's hand is Edna, with her new husband Oscar Lewisohn on her left.
The three ladies standing from left are Edna's sisters Jane and Marguerite and the actress Pauline Chase.
The two men (far left and rear) are not identified. They resemble each other. They very well could be Edna's father, Edgar, and her brother, Adelbert.
