Late in life, New York merchant and developer Nicholas Low (1739-1826) married Alice (Haliburton) Fleming, a widow who brought two sons to the marriage, one of whom was  Augustus Fleming (1785-1865). Low's children with Alice included a daughter,  Henrietta Liston Low (1799-1882), who married (as his second wife) Charles King (1789-1867), son of diplomat Rufus King (1755-1827). Among the children of Charles and Henrietta (Low) King was  Cornelius Low King (1829–1893). By his first marriage Charles King had a son,  Rufus King (1814-1876), who, in turn, had a son named  Rufus King Jr. (1838-1900). (All names  underlined are represented by documents in the present collection.)
