About David Stuart Ogilvy

Captain David Stewart Ogilvy, was a Scottish adventurer who had served in India during the 1857 rebellion, and also in the Crimea. After leaving the army he went to Turkey, where he took a post as an unpaid vice-consul at Gallipoli, supposedly on the recommendation of Gladstone, to whom he was distantly related. While in Turkey he married a Greek woman, Thalia Xanthoupolis; Elizabeth Valentine, their only child, was born in 1861. Thalia died soon afterwards; Ogilvy then married a Dutch woman (Eveline Eulalie van Lennep !), by whom he had at least two more children. In 1870 he volunteered to fight on the French side in the Franco-Prussian War, and was killed in action in November 1870.”
