Studio portrait of Alice Heron London.
Alice Heron London (1814-1881) was born in Wilmington, NC, and married Platt Ketchum Dickinson in 1845. They had no children, but Alice and her husband raised her nephew, Pembroke Jones, as their own when his mother, Alice's sister, passed away. He was only three years old, and his father was unable to care for him due to extensive business travel. Alice is buried in Oakdale Cemetery.
