    Notes 
    • From Lari Siegel, Goldie's granddaughter:
      Goldie Greenberg was fun and adventurous. She bobbed her hair, liked to go dancing, swooned over movie stars, and like the rest of the female population, was crushed when Rudolph Valentino died. And, when she saw an attractive gentleman would remark, "He can put his shoes under my bed."
      She had attended a Lutheran school in Romania where she learned French and German. So whilst her father was working at the bus company, I assume repairing the carriages the horses used to chauffeur the multitudes of New Yorkers, Goldie change her name. Instead of Greenberg, which translates to Green Mountain, she was known for a period as Vermont, which of course means, Green Mountain. Goldie Greenberg was definitely born in the wrong decade.
      One day her mother, who shall remain nameless, was cleaning or nosing around -- who's to say. Hidden in one of Goldie's drawers was a marriage license to one Samuel Siegel. The marriage was bad enough, but the fact that it wasn't performed by a Rabbi was too much for whatís her name.
      Subsequently, a proper Jewish wedding occurred June 4, 1922 to ease the shame and restore honor.
