The artist’s father, Thomas Edmund Greacen, arrived in New York from Scotland in 1868 and became active in the shoe business.  Soon he married Isabella Wiggins, “the daughter of a wealthy New York family; applied her capital and his own shrewd judgment to the wholesale shoe trade, and prospered.”  The family holdings expanded: “There was a brownstone at 6 West 50th Street. . . [and] a farm in Sullivan County where the four children spent their summers” (Knudsen, 1972, p. 5).  O (showing 500 of 19386 characters).
