Isabella Eugenie Singer (nee Boyer)
Isabella was Singer's second wife. She was born in 1841 in Paris of French and English parents. They were married in New York in 1863 when Isaac was 52 and Isabella was 22. She was only 30 when she moved to Oldway with Isaac. By this time they already had six children together, two girls and four boys. Their names were Winnaretta, Isabelle, Mortimer, Washington, Paris and Franklin. Shortly after Singer's death in 1875 Isabella returned to Paris and became the model for Bartholdi's Statue of Liberty.
