After her father, with whom Cleveland had a close friendship, died intestate, Cleveland was appointed guardian of the estate. Their relationship became romantic while Frances was a student at Wells College and, shortly after her graduation, he proposed to her by mail. The pair married at the White House making Frances, then 21 years old and 27 years younger than her husband, the youngest first lady in history, and a subject of intense public fascination. ********** She was first lady during both of Cleveland’s unusual non-consecutive terms, after which they settled in Princeton. With the former president’s death in 1908 she became a widow at age 44, and in 1913, she married archaeology professor and Wells College president Thomas Jex Preston, Jr. ********** With normal wear and in very good condition.
