A Roosevelt Visits Rumson

October 2, 2015

By Sharon Hazard

The Roosevelt family, perhaps one of the most beloved families in American history, has roots in Monmouth County, including the Sea Bright Lawn Tennis and Cricket Club and the Moses Taylor Memorial Church in Elberon.

Noel Geer Seifert, who along with her daughter, Julia, are the last surviving members of this branch of the Roosevelt family visited Sea Bright recently and was introduced to the fascinating world of her great-great grandmother, Kate Shippen Roosevelt, who had homes in New York City and New Jersey. Noel’s grandfather, Shippen Roosevelt Geer was the son of Dorothy Roosevelt Geer, the only child of Kate and Hilborne Roosevelt.
