This is from a St. Louis newspaper report in 1912 after the Titanic accident:

Mrs. Robert formerly was the wife of Judge George A. Madill.

Miss Georgette A. Madill is one of St. Louis' richest heiresses. She is 15 years old. By an order of court a year ago she was to have a "pin money" annual allowance of $7500 to pay for her clothing and education until she bacame 18 yrs. old. Judge Madill was for several years president of the Union Trust Co., since merged with the St. Louis Trust Co. His daughter, Georgette, was his principal heir. With her mother and her cousin, Miss Allen, daughter of George W. Allen, Miss Madill went to Europe in January, 1911.

Mrs. Robert and Miss Madill usually spent their winters at the Bon Air Hotel in Augusta, GA, a resort frequented by many persons of wealth including John D. Rockefeller. It was estimated that the income from the estate of which Miss Madill was the principal was not less than $50.000 a year.

An article at "enclopedia Titanica" says that she married Don Antonio Mattei of Malta. Georgette became grossly overweight in later life while her husband who was "Maltese royalty" was pencil thin!

This is all I have at this time.
