Former Wife of Warren McConihe
Marries Barrett Andrews,
Recently Divorced, in Montclair.


Bride Decorated by France and Belgium for
War Relief Work---Mr. Andrews Partner of Senator Edge.

Mrs. Margaret S. McConihe and Barrett Andrews, both of this city, were married on Monday evening at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Schneider, Montclair, N. J. Their marriage will come as a surprise to many of their friends, and it follows close on the divorce between Mrs. Andrews and her first husband, Warren McConihe of 440 Park Avenue, granted on March 1. Mr. Andrews and his former wife were divorced in February.

The marriage was very quiet, the ceremony being performed by the Rev. Dr. Cook in the presence of only a few relatives. Yesterday Mr. Andrews and his bride sailed on the Carmania, to spend six weeks in England and France.

Mrs. Andrews has been prominent in New York for several years, particularly on account of her active interest in war relief work. In recognition of her services for France the French Government awarded her with the Medallic Reconnaissance with a star for distinguished service, and she also received a decoration from the Queen of Belgium. During the war she founded the Free Milk for France organization and became its President. One of her chief aids in carrying on this work was Miss Josephine Osborn, daughter or Dr. and Mrs. Henry Fairfield Osborn.

Mrs. Andrews before her first marriage was Miss Margaret S. Schneider. She is a descendant of Edward Everett and of Governor Nathaniel Pitcher and is a grandniece of Mark Hopkins of Williams College.

Mr. Andrews was divorced by his former wife last November by an interlocutory decree which was not made public until Feb. 2, when she applied for a final decree in the Supreme Court. He is descended from Marcus Whitman, one of the earliest pioneers of the Far West and the founder of Whitman College, Oregon, of which Mr. Andrews is now a Director. He has been for some years actively interested in the publishing business. For some time he has been a partner of Senator Walter E. Edge of New Jersey. During the war he took an active part, serving with the First Division as a Colonel in the motor transport corps and also on the General Staff. Upon their return from Europe, Mr. and Mrs. Andrews will make their home in New York.
