I am the 3rd great-grandchild of Caroline Starr Wolcott, (Pg. 284 in the book), it states that her children were Henry and Caroline (married to Rudyard Kipling) that is wrong.
Caroline whom is mentioned in the book married to Rudyard Kipling was actually her granddaughter. Caroline's parents were Henry and Anna (Smith) Wolcott. Henry being Caroline Starr Wolcott Balestier's mother. I
just wanted to clarify this.
Caroline Starr Wolcott and Joseph Neree Balestier had 5 children they were:
Robert Starr Balestier: 1838 -1903
Henry Wolcott Balestier: 1840 - 1870
John Augustus Balestier: 1842 - 1912
Joseph Neree Balestier Jr.: 1845 - 1909
Caroline Wolcott Balestier: 1852 - 1855
As for the book, I found it very interesting. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to read it.
