Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesen

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Home Taliesen, Featured in Quiz #139, December 16, 2007

On the evening to August 15, 194, Maymah Borthwick, Wright’s common law wife, her two children John and Marsha, and four other people, were murdered at Taliesen on August 15, 1914. The murderer was Julian Carleton, a manservan who Wright had hired two months earlier.

The article that appeared in the New York Times on August 16, 1914, mentioned that Mrs. Borthwick’s three-year-old-son was missing, and assumed burned to death.

However, there is no further mention of this son in the news reports of the crime. As Marilyn Hamill points out, the child would have had to have been Maymah’s son with Wright, as they left for Europe in 1909 and the murders occurred in 1914.  Does anyone have any information about this mysterious child?
