The Jerome Sisters
All Five Married Well – One Is Lady Randolph Churchill

Of all the girls in New York city the five Jerome sisters were considered the handsomest, and their father gave them every advantage that money could procure. They were as fond of horses as their father, and were in every way typical New York society girls of the most exclusive Four Hundred.

They all made brilliant marriages, and one of them became Lady Randolph Churchill and went to London to live, where, after a long and bitter fight with the English nobility, she at last won an esteemed and resected position among them; but she bears in her face the lines born of long suffering, though a very handsome woman. Americans abroad are most grateful for her for her kindly offices in their behalf on many occasions.

Another sister married Mr. Moreton Frewer, and she also is a handsome woman, with a close resemblance to her sisters. She lives in New York in winter and at Newport, Lenox or Saratoga in summer, or abroad visiting Lady Churchill when the latter is not here. She is also a belle in society, and is said to always have ready for instant wear 200 gowns. Her diamonds are exceedingly handsome, even among the diamonds worn in New York.

Mrs. Jack Leslie is another sister who also married rich and happily, and is a shining light among the great Four Hundred.

Mrs. Clarence Gray Dinsmore was a Jerome before her marriage to one of the sons of the late William B. Dinsmore, president of Adams Express company, and she, too, is possessed of her share of the family beauty, with a fine figure and very delicate complexion, golden hair and blue eyes. Her favorite jewels are pearls, and she as well as her sisters are all thorough ladies of distinguished family.

There was another sister who was married to J. Harry Alexander, and she died a few years ago, a very young bride. All of them married young.
