Her sister, Caroline, is also featured in this album. Her marriage was reported in the New York Times. The ceremony was held in St. Paulís Church and was performed by Rev. Leonard K. Storrs. The couple later lived in Dedham. Her father, Desmond FitzGerald, was a well-known hydraulic engineer who became Superintendent of the Metropolitan Water Works and worked at the pumping station in Chestnut Hill. He was a noted art collector and, in 1913, built a private museum next to his house for his collection of works by artists like Monet, Renoir, and Degas. The building is now the Church of Christ. She moved to Manhattan after her wedding.
