Junius Brutus Booth III & Florence Edviga Noah

Hello,

On 29 Sep 1891, Miss Florence Noah arrived in London, England, on board the British ship "Princess".

In 1894 Florence Elizabeth Marie Edviga Noah married Junius Brutus Booth.

Junius had aspirations to be an actor but was largely unsuccessful in his endeavors, it seems that by 1912, when he and his wife had been living in England for some time, possibly because of her bad health, his excitable nature and poor business dealings he murdered Florence and then committed suicide on 6 Dec.1912, a verdict of murder whilst insane was given.

I wondered if anyone had any further information on this case? Florence Noah is my ancestress "cousin". I'd also love to know if anyone has ANY information on Junius III. Very little is written about him, though there is a great deal on his father, brother, and of course, his nephew--John Wilkes Booth.

Thanks so much in advance!!!

Norah Dennis
