Front left to right: George Olsen, Delphine “Didi”, Marie, Vivienne “Vivi”, a friend

CAIRE, Mary “May” née Suich (1876-1961), wife of Arthur J. Caire. They had three children:

  • Justinian Caire II (1906-1987), who married Marcia Burnheim (1905-1987)
  • Olivia Lucile Caire [Swortfiguer] (1909-1993), who married George Swortfiguer (1899-1992)
  • Miriam Frances Caire (1912-1999), who never married

Mary Suich's sister, Lillian Suich, married Frederic F. Caire, and thus the children of the two sisters who were married to two Caire brothers were double first cousins.
