of Man Whose Spouse Has
Decided to Desert Him
XEW YORK, Oct. 14. — Although no
legal proceedings have been begun, It
Is an open secret among their friends
that a separation has taken place be
tween Mr. and Sirs. Powers Gouraud,
and after a sojourn of several months
in Europe the husband returned to this
city and took up a residence apart front
his Tvlfe. who returned to her mother.
Mrs. Amy Crocker-Ashe-Glllig-Gouraud
•— wife of Powers Gonraud'f elder
brother. At the time of the marriage
In London In 1903 the bride was only 10
Tears old nnd an heiress to a large for
tune, which Trill be Increased by what
she 'will Inherit from her mother.
Powers Oouraud. son of Colonel
George Gouraud, an American who for
many years has resided In London, was
rather less fortunate from a financial
etantipoint than was his bride, and his
friends were free in their belief that he
had made as good a match as had his
brother, who had married the mother.
Gouraud's marriage to his brother's
stepdaughter made a rather involved
relationship, as his sister-in-law be
came his mother-in-law and his brother
became his stepfather-in-law, while his
bride became his stepfather's sister-in
law, and by marriage she became |
\u25a0lßter-in-law to her mother.
; - ;
Gouraud has been on the stage. He
has played in the chorus and in other
parts "for experience," his friends say,
but after the marriage such a necessity
was no longer present, and the couple
lived in a manner in keeping with the
wealth of th<? brid«. By the provisions
under which she came into her fortune
It was tied up in such a manner as to
make hei; complete mistress of it. no
matter what contingency might arise
through marriage.
After a trip to Europe Mrs. Gouraud
took up her residence with the Jackson
Gourauds a.t 439 Madison avenue, while
her husband sought his quarters else
Mr. and Mrs. Jackson Gouraud are
indefatigable "first nighters." but re
cently the young woman had accom
panied them, rarely preferring ' the j
privacy of her home. She is described
as being of rather a retiring disposi
tion. It is a source of speculation
among those who are acquainted with <
the circumstances as to whether j
heredity is playing any part in the
young woman's career, for it is recalled
that her mother has made three matri
monial ventures, each attended by ro- J
mantle and unequal conditions.
Powers Gouraud was married to
Gladys Crocker, daughter of Amy
Crocker ar.d her husband, R. Porter
Ashe, with whom she had eloped in
ISE2, in the Church of St. Clemens Dane
in London three years ago. After a
more or less extensive tour the couple
took up their residence in this city
and they seemed happy. The good for
tune of the Gouraud brothers, who had
come to this city with nothing more
than their names and the talents they
possessed, in marrying two such
wealthy women was long a topic of
gossip. i
Mrs. Jackson Gouraud is the daugh- j
ter of E. B. Crocker, one of the finan
ciers of the Union Pacific and an im
portant member of the Crocker family
of San Francisco. After her elopement
with Afehe she obtained a divorce from
him and in 1899 married Henry M. Gil
lig, commodore of the Larchmont Yacht
Club. Their entertainments at Larch
mont were unusually lavish. A divorce
was decreed between the Gllligs in
1901 and that year in Paris she mar
ried Jackson Gouraud.
