A daughter for the Szechenyis

October 27, 1908

The Countess Szechenyi gave birth to a daughter today at the Szecheny castle in Budapest, according to the New York Times, which received the news by special cable.
The Countess is the former Miss Gladys Moore Vanderbilt, youngest daughter of the late Cornelius Vanderbilt and sister of Cornelius, Alfred G. and Reginald C. Vanderbilt and Mrs. Harry Payne Whitney.
The marriage between Miss Vanderbilt and Count Szechenyi, a Hungarian nobleman, took place last January 276, and "was perhaps the most notable wedding since that of her first cousin, Miss Consuelo Vanderbilt, daughter of William K. Vanderbilt, to the Duke of Marlborough.  
The couple were married in a Roman Catholic ceremony at the Vanderbilt Mansion at 58th Street and  Fifth Avenue.
