  • Notes 
    • At the time of his daughter's marriage to Lord Randolph, Mr. Jerome was proprietor and editor of The New York Times. He had already lost one fortune and made another. One of the "fathers of the turf" in America. he founded the first two race courses in the United States. His forcefulness was attested during the Civil War where mobs attacked the office of his paper. He had taken the precaution of arming his staff with rifles and had even purchased a battery of cannon. He had no hesitation in ordering the arms to be turned on the mob, who were beaten off, not without bloodshed.
      American Consul in Trieste 1851-52
      Founder of the American Jockey Club
