The Pickens Sisters--Helen, Jane, and Patti
The Pickens Sisters were originally Jane and her older sisters Helen and Grace. Grace dropped out of the act and was replaced by a singer named Marla Forbes for a few months. When Marla Forbes quit in the late spring of 1932, the youngest Pickens sister, Patti--only 14 at the time--joined Helen and Jane and that combination remained until the Pickens Sisters trio went their separate professional ways in 1936. "The Three X Sisters" were another group entirely, composed of sisters Pearl Hamilton Santos and Violet Hamilton and a non-relative named Jessie Fordyce.

I guess he did marry both. Pardon me. A crazy bunch.

Louise Saunderson
Please correct your fine memorial here as she was married to Alexis, not Serge Mdivani. Even the newspaper article you have included here states this. Thank you.

Perle Mesta
Tyler, I liked your bio of Perle Mesta very much. One item that I believe needs correction is this:

"...she married Mesta, who brought her to Democratic conventions and left her a fortune in 1962."

George Mesta died in 1925, and he left his entire fortune to her. Shouldn't the date of 1962 above be corrected?

Many thanks!
