Sure, this is a learning experience of my own !

Oh yes, History is fun! I have to study it for hours on end..History Ed. Major here lol.

But, I'm not sure if there is a ton of information out there on the Grace's relationship with the Costello side of the family. Has anyone here ever came across any?

Thanks

great photos.. I do remember Princess Grace coming to Ravenhill and Princess Caroline when she was visiting her Aunt Lizanne. She was on the Villanova Campus when I was there and had the pleasure to meet her.

Sweetwater Farm

A nice article about the farm that Chris Levine inherited from his late sister, Grace Levine

Hi, everyone.

My name is Marc and I live in the south of France, so I apologise for my bad english !
Using my friend Google, I have a good genealogy of the Kelly relative but I have two problems left:
Ist: I often see on the tv screen Megan Van Arkel as Grace's niece. The niece I found is Margaret Ann "Meg" Davis with two husbands: Roe Richard and Packer Billy. Is she the same Megan with a third husband Van Arkel ?

2nd: John F. Lehman said: "My grandmother was a sister of Grace's father". I found four sisters of John Brendon Kelly: Anna G. Kelly (born 1875), Mary A. Kelly (born 1882), Elizabeth V. Kelly (born 1884) and Grace T. Kelly (born 1893). Who is the good one ?

Thanks for your answers !

Other than Chris Levine, the best man,JB Kelly and John Lehman did any other Kelly relations attend Albert's wedding. Not really sure how many cousins there are on that side of his family.

We don't know which Kelly cousins attended the wedding,. In April, there were several cousins who joined Prince Albert and Charlene to the visit of Ireland. Chris Levine is very near of Prince Albert, he was at the Red cross Gala in 2007, he danced with Charlene while Prince Albert opened the ball with Princess Stephanie.he was at the last national fest of Monaco, during the civil wedding, He shacked the hand of Prince Albert after signing . I find that Chris is rather 'seduisant'

All the Kelly family from Philly attended the wedding.
-Chris Levine(Lizanne´song) with his wife Vicky and their children: Ginna, Chris and Kelly.
-John Kelly III (Kell´son)(divorced) with his two children: Kat and Nat.
- Suzanne Von Medicus (Kell´s daughter) with husband and two boys: Macius and other which name I can´t remember.
-Margaret Kelly (Kell´s younger daughter) (single).
- Mary Lee Kenworthy (Peggy´s daughter) with husband, Hugh Kenworthy, and children: Margaret Jones (lesbian but she attended with her girlfriend Lisa diPhillipo), Megan Van Arkel (and husband without children).
- Meg Packer (Peggy´s daughter) with husband, Billy Packer, and children: Gabby Roe with wife, Chris Roe with wife and Richard Roe with girlfriend.

and John Lehman and family for sure!

I would like to know what happened with Sandra Worley - John B. Kelly "Kell"´second wife-, is she still alive? Does anybody know where she lives, etc?

Thanks in advance

ps: Mary Freeman Spitzer, Kell´s first wife is in fb: https://www.facebook.com/maryspitzer33?ref=ts
and i found this photo of the Kellys and the Fremans at John and Mary´s wedding in 1954, but where Grace was? Didn´t she attended? Perhaps she was filming "The Bridges of Toko RI"

I would like to know if anybody here knows how the Austrian society-lady Christa Mayrhofer-Dukor is related to the late Princess Grace ? Apparently they were some sort of cousins, Christa and her daughter Eva Countess Walderdorff were invited to Albert's wedding and they were with Princess Caroline at the Vienna Opera Ball in 1990. I remember Caroline's face as if it were yesterday, she was there with her second husband and totally pissed off because somebody destroyed the train of her dress. So Christa Mayrhofer-Dukor is not just claiming it she is really related somehow to Princess Grace although I highly doubt they were 1st cousins. I think she once claimed that her father and Grace's mother were siblings. Anybody here an idea ? Alas I don't know Christa's maiden name, apparently she was married several times ... .

• "Grace Kelly wre stolz auf Albert" • Gesellschaft & Leute • news.at that's Christa Mayrhofer-Dukor by the way ;-)

yes, I already know the article. I am from Austria, so I understand it perfectly well. What's mor it is the same article I already posted above. I know that Christa Mayrhofer always claims that she is related to Grace through Grace's mother but nobody knows exactly how. I really think she is not a first cousin but a second cousin, cause as far as I know Grace's mother had 2 brothers who were born, lived and died in Philadelphia. So it is somehow unlikely that Christa is a daughter of one of them....

High, Sensibility!

Can you confirm that Megan Arkel is a daughter of Mary Lee Davis? Who is the father: John Paul Jones or Hugh Kennworthy ?
Thanks.

You know fathers in that time were more worried about about there heirs. Girls are married off. Men carry on the family name etc

No, Chris is not an Ambassador. Chris Le Vine is an owner of Sweetwater Farms Bed & Breakfast (on Facebook and Twitter) along with his wife, Vickie. He was left Sweetwater Farms B&B by his sister, Grace, who died in 1999. I believe prior to that he was an investment banker.
He has three kids-two girls and a son. His daughters are Ginny (Virginia) and Kelly, his son is Conrad. Kelly and Ginny both attended Carnegie Mellon University, I'm not sure where Conrad attended. Kelly Le Vine studied costume design. Vickie was/is an artist.

Other than that info, I don't know anything about him, but am curious to learn more-like facts like his birthday, ect....anyone know that? I imagine around Albert's age. He had a sister, Grace Le Vine who was born shortly after Grace married Rainier in 1956. It seems as if Lizanne's kids (Chris and Grace) were close with Caro and Albert-Grace lived with Caroline, Stephanie and Grace when she studied at Sorbonne around the time Caro did, and was a maid of honor in one of Caroline's weddings (I think so anyway-the first one?) and Chris attends the Red Cross and Rose Balls annually, as well as the Princess Grace USA Foundation Gala, as well as was Best Man for Albert in July.

Random question: Keith Sebastian Knecht de Massy is a double cousin of Caro, Al and Steph...his mother married Charles Wayne Knecht...any one know how Charles is connected to Grace?

Definately not. Christian de Massy (no De Massey) is the son of Princess Antoinette and Alexandre-Athenase Noghès. Christine-Alix was his younger sister. Wrong side of the family-Christian has no Kelly blood in him whatsoever.

Sebastian is the son of Charles Wayne Knecht, the grandson of Richard Wayne Knecht and Evelyn Elaine Cruice, and the great-grandson of Joseph John Cruice and Mary A. Kelly. Mary was John Brendan Kelly's older sister. Charles Wayne Knecht is 66 years old and lives in Bryn Mawr with his wife, Naomi. Elaine was apparently married twice and divorced twice as there was no mention of either of her husbands in her obituary. Her first husband, Richard W. Knecht, died on 25 September 2005 in Fort Washington, PA at the age of 92. He was survived by his wife, Suzanne, his son, Wayne Knecht, and his daughter, Paula Brill. Elaine E. Beyer died on 17 May 2007at her home in Stuart, FL at the age of 86. She was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph Cruice and Mary Kelly Cruice. She was survived by a daughter, Paula Jones, of Havertown, PA and a son, Wayne Knecht, of Bryn Mawr, PA.
