We believe that Mary Alken of London was the daughter of a "wealthy and eminent sculptor for his then majesty George III, and resided in Westminster." She had two brothers one an officer in the army, the other a silk mercer.
We believed she married Francis (or France) Dubuar and was promptly disinherited. Francis and Mary came to the US and settled in New York.
This is where our story begins. Looking for more information about Mary and her London family or her stay in NY.
