Marvin Pierce (l.) and Pauline Pierce with George W. Bush (r.). Questions remain about the circumstances of George W. Bush's grandmother's death in 1949.

Although we know that George W. Bush's brother Marvin is up to his neck in dubious business deals and the strange death of his housekeeper, who was said to have been run over by her own driverless SUV in Marvin's driveway and killed, it is interesting to point to another Marvin in the Bush family -- matriarch Barbara Bush's father Marvin Pierce. Pierce was the publisher of McCall's and Redbook magazines. He married Pauline Robinson in 1918. Pauline's father had served on the Ohio Supreme Court. One of Marvin's ancestors, third cousin, three times removed, was President Franklin Pierce. The Pierces had three children, Barbara being the youngest. On September 19, 1949, Marvin was driving to the Rye, New York train station when he said he reached over to prevent a cup of hot coffee from sliding across the seat and scolding Pauline who was supposedly in the passenger's seat. Marvin said he lost control of the vehicle causing it to crash into a stone wall. Pauline was killed instantly. WMR has spoken to a researcher who read the original newspaper stories about the incident. The journalists who covered the story did not exactly buy Marvin's story -- citing the fact that he walked away relatively unscathed, the all-important coffee cup was unbroken, but Pauline was killed from fracturing her skull on the windshield. In June 1952, Marvin Pierce married Associated Press reporter Willa Martin.

Barbara Bush never attended her mother's funeral. According to Kitty Kelley's well-researched tome on the Bushes, "The Family," George H. W. Bush wrote the following to his friend Gerry Bemiss on October 21, 1949: "Did you know Bar's mother was killed in an auto accident 3 weeks ago while driving Mr. Pierce to the station?" Apparently, just like with Marvin Bush's maid story, the Bushes could not keep the story straight. Newspaper accounts stated that Marvin was driving the car, George H. W. Bush reports to a friend that Pauline was driving Mr. Pierce.

Rye, New York would figure into another bizarre Bush tale. On October 11, 1953, after Barbara and George W. Bush's almost-four-year old daughter Robin died of leukemia. After they witnessed their young daughter's death, they left Sloan Kettering Hospital in Manhattan to go golfing in Rye. There was never a funeral for Robin -- the Bushes had donated her organs to Sloan Kettering for research. Later, George H. W. Bush's mother, Dorothy, took it upon her own to have Robin's remains buried in the Bush cemetery plot in Greenwich, Connecticut. Barbara and George did not attend the funeral service.
