GracieRoosevelt connection


Lou Kerr

Is there a genealogist in the house? I'm looking for an explanation of how Col. Gracie and Theodore Roosevelt were related by marriage. In Mrs. Gracie's obituary on this site it states "Her husband was a nephew of King Gracie, who was a brother-in-law of President Roosevelt". Teddy Roosevelt had two sisters, Anna whose married name was Cowles, and Corinne who married name was Robinson. His maternal aunt Anna Bulloch married a James Gracie. Was James an uncle of Archibald Gracie? And was James also known as King Gracie? Thanks in advance to whomever comes forward to answer this query.
