It has always been the plan to include information about collateral families, as that information carries forward with the offspring from that union.


Isabella? Yes, Stewart; she is covered in a Wikipedia article about her museum. We have already mentioned the John Lowells a couple of times. Isabella married John "Jack" Lowell II in 1860. Their son, John III, died as an infant.

Some say that the art collecting efforts started about then.


There is a Stewart tradition, mentioned by Frank A, about King Fergus. However, Isbella's mother, Adelia Smith, has an interesting family history (Larson).


01/01/2019 -- Isabella featured in a New England Historical Society article: Isabella Stewart Gardner Holds a Champagne and Donuts Party on New Year's Day. Earlier, forgot to put in this link: 10 Sep 2016 - Stone from the Gardner-Wyman-Peabody Mill found in the low tide. Provided a summary of the history of the family that owned the mill to John Goff (who wrote of the mill in The Tide Mill Times). A member of the family was John Lowell Gardner II.
