      They have a son, Charles, 14, and a daughter, Edith, 10. She and Mr. Grafmueller's daughter, Joan S., will be with them in Grosse Point.

      Mr. Grafmueller's first wife, who died several years ago, was Miss Barbara Brownlee of Danbury, Conn., niece of Harold Dennis of Newark.

      Mr. de Rham right after the divorce married Miss Estelle Bolling of Richmond, Va., Aug. 6.
