fallout with son Allan
Content of this page is about :
How Thomas Fortune Ryan remarried Mary Townsend Cuyler afer Ida's death and
how this led to a schism with his favorite son Allan A. Ryan
Mary Townsend (Nicoll)
Lord Cuyler, who was probably his mistress for several years, before
becoming his second wife, only twelve days after Ida (Barry) Ryan died.
in other families, the remarriage of Thomas Fortune Ryan to the widow of
Cornelius C. Cuyler was badly received by Ryan’s children, particularly his
son Allan Alloysius Ryan. The schism between father and son eventually led
to the latter being disinherited, but not before he lost his own fortune and
more in the famous Stutz Motor stock corner of 1920.
