The 5th photo down that says John B kelly Sr. is actually a picture of John Kelly Jr, his son. The senior John Kelly was a very handsome man, his son was nice looking also. I read some where and I think it was FDR, but I am not sure ,who said that John Kelly Sr. was the most handsome man he ever saw.

You are right, the 5th photo down is of the brother of Princess Grace, not her father. I've posted a picture of a book cover with father and son side-by-side. It is a great book with the unique story of the Kelly father and son relationship.

Thank you, you are right. Sorry, my mistake.

Just out of curiosity is anything in Philly named in honour of Grace, either as Grace Kelly the actress or as Grace the Princess Consort of Monaco? I mean something like a school or a theatre or a street. I know there are memorials to her father like the bust of him by the river.

I've been living in the Philly area for a while now, and to my knowledge, there isn't really anything named after Grace. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong. If they were, they'd probably named for her as Grace Kelly, rather than as consort to a foreign head of state (not as patriotic). One thing that is in Philly is her wedding dress, which she donated to the Philadelphia Museum of Art after her wedding. It was sort of to make up for the fact that she married in Monaco (for state reasons) and her hometown was denied a chance at hosting a royal wedding. Unfortunately, the gown is no longer on permanent as the light has become harmful to the fabric.

No, unfortunately. Kelly Drive is named after her brother. There are a few other references to the family as a whole, but nothing devoted to Grace in particular.

This is a very nice article about Christopher Le Vine, the son of Lizanne and Donald Le Vine. When his sister, Grace Le Vine passed away, she left Sweetwater Farm to him. He and his wife now run the Sweetwater Farm Bed and Breakfast. This article says that Christopher and his wife Vickie have three children.

Smile Glistening Seas

The articles were dee-lightful!! The place has a 'cozy' sense to it so it must be a delight for anyone to visit there. It's nice to see even family have stayed there as well.

Grace had the lovely rounded cheeks and a good smile when she was a girl.
These photos are the family legend.
