      The second Mrs. George Peabody Eustis was a Newport socialite in the 1910s, born Rosamond K. Street in 1882, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William A Street. Rosamond and George were cousins. When they were engaged to be married in 1908, the New York Times noted: "Miss Street, who came out several years ago, is considered one of the handsomest young women in society. She is an accomplished pianist, having taken part in many amateur entertainments for charity."

      The couple had an eventful honeymoon in Europe; George caught smallpox and they spent their trip home in quarantine on the Carpathia. 4FB345512738...

      The Eustises changed their surname to Corcoran in 1921, to perpetuate the name of his late grandfather, WIlliam C. Corcoran. So this woman became Rosamond Eustis Corcoran, and her children were named William Street Eustis Corcoran and Lucinda Morgan Eustis Corcoran.

      Rosamond's great-granddaughter is TIME editor Ruth Davis Konigsberg. erg/
