Did you know that a descendant of Morton B. Sackett married a princess?

On 11 Nov 1950, William Henry Wambold, at the time military attache in Tehran, Iran, married Princess Guiti Afrouz Kadjar. The marriage was big news in the US, evidenced by the many news articles that appeared around the country.

William Wambold died 50 years later on 18 Nov 2000 (see https://www.sackett-tree.org/getperson.php?personID=I45630&tree=1 for his obituary and a family photo). Mrs. Wambold died in New York City on 14 July 2022. Her New York Times obituary is an interesting read: https://www.legacy.com/us/obituaries/nytimes/name/guity-wambold-obituary?id=36024313
