Historical She was an artist, painting in both oil and watercolour.

The Toeg family came from Baghdad to Shanghai. The surname is a variant of Douek. Husband, David, was born in Shanghai on September 15, 1900. He and Barbara married in Shanghai on July 26, 1931. They left Shanghai for the US on May 27, 1949. In 1952, they lived at 884 Yuba Street, Richmond, California. David died on May 26, 1957, at the age of 56.

David was previously married to Cecile Laval Arnoux (b. July 9, 1898, St. Louis, MO) but they divorced a few years later. She died in 1931 and is apparently buried in Happy Valley Roman Catholic Cemetery, S5 #5567. She was a dancer in the Ziegfeld Follies and then a silent movie actress. They had a son named Robert Raphael Toeg (b. March 15, 1925, San Francisco, CA), though it is believed that Robert’s father was Nicolai Merkuloff, a merchant from Vladivostok who worked in China. In David’s US Immigration document, he stated that he had no children. David was a stockbroker.
