Rachel Strong grew up in Cleveland and married Henri de Boisgelin (b. 1897). They lived until at least the 1970s and had a chateau in the Bretagne region of France. I'm not sure when they passed, but they died without having children. The estate went to his relatives. I believe the chateau is now a hotel. Interestingly, he was a great nephew of Louis de Clercq (a famous french collector and photographer) and donated a great number of his items to the Louvre in 1967. The de Boisgelins were a warm and generous couple.
