Well... I think I may have a bit of a bite for you here. I just started researching my genealogy and I think my G Grandmother may very well be your "Marie." My G Grandmother, nee Hood, married name Weinbrenner, remarried later in life to a Yemendjian. We never knew anything about this though or where this name came from. She was living in Philly, though, I believe which means the geography matches up. I hope this has been helpful!
