Frances Folsom Cleveland Preston - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Frances Folsom Cleveland Preston

Frances Clara Folsom Cleveland Preston (July 21, 1864 - October 29, 1947) was the wife of the President of the United States Grover Cleveland and the 27th First Lady of the United States from 1886 to 1889 and again from 1893 to 1897. Becoming First Lady at age 21, she remains the youngest First Lady in history.

JaclynHall's insight:

Grover's wife, Frances, was the youngest First Lady, and the only one to be married at the White House. She was 27 years younger than Grover, and he went to work on their wedding day.

JaclynHall's insight:

I find it interesting that not only was President Cleveland against the annexation of Hawaii, and hoped to restore it's monarch during his second term as president, his grandson continues to work to maintain a positive relationship with the families of the Hawaiian monarchs.
