About Florence H Abecasis de Monteverde

Florence married the Marquis Alfredo Aquiles Abecasis de Monteverde, secretary of the Portuguese legation at Rome, in July 1907. He was born May 7, 1865, and died January 18, 1917 in Bayonne, France. They had two sons: Count Alfred Ferdinand de Monteverde, known as the "Flying Nobleman", and his elder brother, the Marquis George Louis de Monteverde (born April 27, 1908 in Lisbon), also a pilot. The brothers ran a flying school. They survived a plane crash on June 22, 1935 while attempting to fly from New York to Rome. However, Alfred was killed while flying a transport mission off the coast of Africa in 1943. George died in an automobile accident in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he was a press attache to the U.S. Embassy, on March 18, 1951. He was married to Georgia Allen.

Dr. George Halsted Boylan was born in Cincinnati on January 19, 1845, the eldest son of James Boylan and Mary Kerr Halsted. After studies at Yale, he studied medicine in Leipzig and Paris. Dr. Boylan served as a surgeon in the French army during the Franco-Prussian War, where he received the Cross of Honor for distinguished service. He then practiced medicine in Baltimore where he met Ellen. He was Mark Twain's family physician.

After their marriage, they lived abroad for twenty years until Ellen's death in 1909. George then moved back to Baltimore and married Mary Lloyd Key Gilmor, whose first husband had been Ellen's brother, on June 15, 1911 at Grace Episcopal Church in Baltimore. She was the granddaughter of Francis Scott Key.

George died of pneumonia in Baltimore on January 21, 1919. His second wife, Mary, died May 20, 1934.
