1963 Paige Young Marriage & 1964 Divorce to Mark F. Segal. Marvin M. Mitchelson Lawyer. Divorce Documents.

1963 October 1st Paige Young marries Mark Frederick Segal in Las Vegas, per ledger records from Las Vegas.

Notice in the Valley News December 25, 1964

An elopement likely in one of those 24-hour Las Vegas wedding chapels.

The record shows only the date and names.

 Paige’s new husband Mark F. Segal, born in 1942, is the son of WW2 veteran Harold Segal and his wife. At one time at least, they resided in Sherman Oaks at 4518 Vista Del Monte. Mark was a marine private who took combat training in 1961 at Camp Pendleton.

  Segal was a car dealer at “Sea-Gull Motors,” a business started by his father according to ads in the late 1950s. Sea-Gull Motors moves locations several times in the Sherman Oaks/Van Nuys area in the 1960s, including 7211 Balboa Avenue, 4425 Van Nuys Blvd. and  6738 Sepulveda Blvd.

1963-1964 Paige and Mark live together as husband and wife at 4133 Crisp Canyon Road in Sherman Oaks, “south of Ventura Blvd.”

Paige continues to board her horse Hamish at Sepulveda Stables.  The Crisp Canyon address is close to the neighborhood where Diana Cotterell lived and attended elementary and junior high school.

A friend of Paige’s from Sepulveda Stables told me a story that when she was 12 years old, Paige (19/20 years old), drove her to the house on Crisp Canyon Rd. to hang out and drink lemonade.

1964 on August 28, 11 months after her Las Vegas marriage, Paige and her attorney file for divorce from Mark F. Segal. Paige is represented by rising Beverly Hills attorney Marvin M. Mitchelson.

Below are just a few of the numerous divorce documents I obtained from a records department in Downtown LA.

Paige’s complaints about husband Mark Segal and demanding he not hide his money for one thing.

 The filing states that Mark threatened Paige and her animals with bodily harm “on numerous occasions,” and on August 17, 1964, “brandished a knife in her presence.” and “Plaintiff’s profession is that of an artist and painter and on or about June 15, 1964, defendant maliciously and with intent to destroy plaintiff’s artwork drove nails through plaintiff’s prized paintings and further did mischievous damage by driving nails through plaintiff’s personal belongings including an expensive fur stole.”

Paige requests a restraining order.

Paige is granted the temporary restraining order.

Mark quickly countersues and denies all of Paige’s claims of abuse. He claims that she is the one who caused him mental anguish and suffering.

Declaration of Husband Document.

Marvin Mitchelson, on behalf of Paige asks for alimony, lawyer’s fees and court costs: “Plaintiff is not employed and presently embarking on a career as a painter, therefore needs the money from Defendant who is able bodied and employed.”

 Marks balks at this request and states he can’t afford it.
