The subject was born in the parish of Romarentin, Diocese of Orleans, France. In 1786 he came to New York where he became known as John Vaché. Four years after his arrival he became the first to manufacture artificial flowers in New York at 28 Liberty Street. This miniature portrait of him was a gift to the Society from his great-granddaughter.
