Louise Clover Boldt was born on October 31, 1853. She was the only daughter of George Charles and Louise Augusta Boldt. She was educated at the Spence School in New York City, and became engaged in April of 1907 to Mr. Alfred Graham Miles of N.Y. City. They married on October 8, 1907.
The young couple had great admiration for the Thousand Islands Region and the beautiful St.Lawrence River, and vacationed there often. They were both very active in sports and while in the 1000 Islands, often enjoyed tennis, polo, and motor-boat racing.
Louise Clover and Alfred Miles only had one child – a daughter whom they named Clover Wotherspoon Miles. She was born on February 21, 1910. They later divorced on July 26, 1910.
After her father’s death in 1916, Louise Clover was active in running her father’s vast empire for many years until she and her brother, George Jr, decided to sell off the family estate. One-by-one.
They unloaded the family inheritance, and Louise Clover remained very active in the Thousand Islands all of her life. She retained ‘Hopewell Hall,’ situated on Wellesley Island, which she left to her daughter, Clover.
