The couple secured the license at Marble Hill in Bollinger County, but came to the Cape to have Justice Kage perform the ceremony, for the reason that he had married the bride several years ago. Miss Hahn was granted a divorce from her husband during the November, 1917, Term of the Common Pleas Court. Her married name was Daisy Robertson.
