Mabelle Gilman in 1905 was one of the top musical comedy stars on Broadway. In this year she first met William Ellis Corey during an engagement of "The Mocking Bird" in Pittsburgh. Corey was a millionaire having made his fortune in steel. He was president of United States Steel after Charles Schwab. Corey had a wife Laura and a son Alan. overtime Corey paid off Laura so that he could marry Mabelle. Pittsburgh society threatened to shun Corey if he married Mabelle. Mabelle and William Corey married on May 14, 1907. Corey had bought his new wife a Chateau in France, valuable jewels and had given her one million dollars all as a wedding present. Corey's Reno divorce from his first wife Laura and subsequent marriage to Mabelle help put Reno on the map as a destination for quicky divorces.
