Quizmaster Marilyn Hamill brought up an interesting question about the murders at Taliesen. According to the article published in the New York Times August, 15, 1914 describing the murder of Maymah Borthwick Cheney, her children John and Martha, and four other people, Mrs. Borthwick’s three-year-old son was missing and presumed burned to death. Yet there is no further mention of him in other descriptions of the murders. He must have been her son with Frank Lloyd Wright as they had left for Europe in 1909 and the murders occurred in 1914. Does anyone have any information on this mysterious child?
