About Bayonne Whipple Rose Huston (stage name: Fanny Elmina (Mina) Rose's)

Birth: 1865 New York, USA Death: Feb. 20, 1937 California, USA

Here is what my research has found as of 5-31-2013. Any changes that need to be made, please contact me.It was stated by some that she is buried here.)

Fanny Elmina (Mina) Rose's stage name was Bayonne Whipple. She was the daughter of Rev. Rodney Sanford Rose and Mary L. Ward (His third wife). Bayonne was a headliner in Vaudeville, playing Ruth in 'Ninety and Nine" at least 5 Seasons as well as others. She teamed up with Walter Huston in 1910 when she talked him into changing his name from Houghston to Huston as it would fit better on the bill. They became the team "Whipple and Huston". Huston wrote a play called "Shoes" for them. They appeared as a team and seperately. They traveled, rented apartments, and lived with Huston's first wife's father for awhile (acc. to John Huston, actor son of Walter) They also owned a cottage in Candor, Tioga, New York called " Rose Cottage." Huston's 1st marriage to Rhea Gore wasn't good and they divorced in 1912. In 1915 he and Bayonne( Fanny) was married but they divorced on Oct 14, 1931 having been separated since 1929. One newspaper article state that Bayonne was helped into the courtroom by 2 nurses in Reno Nevada at the time of their hearing for the divorce which was granted. (It was a closed courtroom) Huston said after the divorce, he didn't know what happened to her. In an interview he stated that her jealousy of his greater success was the cause for a divorce in 1929. Fred Astaire, in his book, stated he was billed under some greats such as Bayonne Whipple and Walter Huston. Bayonne had others on the same bill with her such as Eddie Cantor and Jack Haley, as well as many others. Walter Huston stated that Vaudeville had destroyed a great actress. Family records state she died on Balboa Island in California and is buried her in Maple Grove Cemetery in her parent's plot.
