+3 votes
Laura Ida Booth Norman, circus performer and Vaudeville actress, supposedly died in 1924, according to her son Charles Wilson Asburn Jr. in a 1935 New York newspaper article.  The Mudd papers at Georgetown University say 1925.  She was living in New York in 1924 at the National Vaudeville Artists Club, 229 W. 46th St, New York City, NY when a letter was sent to her there by a Tennessee lawyer Roy J. Wilson (Mudd papers).  She lived in South Bound Brook, Somerset Co., New Jersey at different times with her husband Charles' aunt Celine Trotter.

She was born in Grundy Co., Tennessee, the daughter of Louisa J. Price Payne Booth.  Supposedly her mother, as she lay dying, told her that her father was John Wilkes Booth and she believed that to be true. (Grundy Co., TN Historical Society)

Laura was married at least three times: Charles Asburn (stage name Levine) in 1896 in Manhattan, Kings Co., NY; to Lewis A. Howard 1914, Hoopeston, Vermilion Co., IL and last to Isaac Driver (stage name Art Norman) 1917, Utica, New York.   Have her in the 1900 New York census, 1910 Pennsylvania census.
