ACTRESS AND AUTHORESS COMMITS SUICIDE
Miss Frances Raymond had talked about persecution

Miss Frances Raymond, an actress, committed suicide by inhaling gas yesterday in her home, a handsomely furnished five room flat at 129 West Ninetieth Street.

The clipping is on line and says her real name is Mrs. Schaeffer that her husband died 10 years ago. Her maiden name was Lapzine. Two sisters were mentioned N. Burdick and Louise Koch. both of Brooklyn.

I cannot find out anything in this marriage. Anyone have them? I am interested in learning more of Frances. Some said she was demented, for she claimed a Doctor named Max was trying to kill her.

I cannot find Lapzine and am certain the name is not spelled correctly. Help me solve this mystery PLEASE.

I AM NOT RELATED but, am researching for a mystery novel.
Frances traveled with the Frohman Traveling Companies.

Would appreciate any leads,
Beverly
