Ethel Merman


American singer and actress known as the First Lady of Musical Comedy. The owner of a powerful, untrained singing voice and exuberant stage persona, she left a permanent record of her talents in over a dozen films, often noted for setting the audience on fire.

Merman had a total of four marriages and divorces, one to Ernest Borgnine in 1964. An autobiography was released in 1978 titled "Merman."

Merman underwent brain surgery to remove a tumor and died ten months later, 2/15/1984.

Source Notes

Starkman quotes "The life and legends of Ethel Merman" By Caryl Flinn, Page 4 and 5

" On January 16, the heavily pregnant twenty-four-year-old Agnes was attending a friend's wedding in the neighbourhood when the labor pains began. She rushed to her mother's house, where she made her home with Edward, and there gave birth to their daughter."

On the 1910 census, taken in April she was 2. On the 1920 census taken on Jan 1, she was 11. That makes 1908 the better choice.
