#476 Miriam Hopkins, actress


Wikipedia who speaks with authority, says she was born in Savannah and raised in Bainbridge. Jones has her born in Bainbridge. I doubt the distance matters. She has no real preponderance in her chart and it is rather scattered about, perfect for a Splash. Mercury and the Sun in the twelfth in Libra give her … Continue reading #476 Miriam Hopkins, actress

#29 Alfred Prince of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha


Prince Alfred was  24 when died.  His sister, Marie of Roumania #646 on the Jones 1000, wrote that his health broke down while the Times of London said that Prince Alfred's death was due to a tumor, but it seems clear that as The Complete Peerage states, he shot himself and was a suicide.

#478 Louis P Horton, sea captain cum taxi driver


Little was found on Mr. Horton, and that was from the archives the New Yorker Magazine  October 28,  1939 volume 15 issue #2.   It seems they were doing "slice of life" stories and Marc Jones must have been entranced by the various people they interviewed.  As for the Captain, he is a rather askew … Continue reading #478 Louis P Horton, sea captain cum taxi driver
