    Thomas J. Schaeper 1995, France and America in the Revolutionary Era, p. 325. The young American girl [Grace, daughte r of Charles Davenport Coxe of Sidney, New Jersey,one of the most famous and influential families of the era] had falle n helplessly in love with the dashing Frenchman [Jacques/James LeRay]. Chaumont fils apparently told her that he did n ot feel for her nearly as much as she did for him, but she would not be rebuffed. Because the match suited his economi c and social ambitions, he finally agreed to marry her. The marriage eventually produced three children, but the two s pouses often were apart in later years. Contemporaries considered Grace to be rather eccentric. Gouverneur Morris rep orted that she was considered by some to be ?crazy.? At any rate, the union with the Cose family would pay off handsom ely for the young man through the following decade.
