Grover Cleveland (March 18, 1837 - June 24, 1908) and Francis Clara Folsom Cleveland (July 21, 1864 - October 29, 1947).  The 22nd and 24th President of the United States, Cleveland was the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms. He was a fiscal conservative and reformer who fought political corruption.  During the Civil War, Cleveland became a lawyer, then a Sheriff in New York, Mayor of Buffalo, Governor of New York, then president. He entered the White House a bachelor. He is the first and only President to be married in the White House, and his love story is as fascinating as his political life: As a lawyer, he partnered with Oscar Harmon and gave the Harmons a baby carriage when their little girl, Frances, was born. As administrator of Frances' estate, Cleveland proposed to Francis and they were married in the executive mansion. Frances had kept the baby carriage that Cleveland had given her and when their own little girl, Ruth, was born, "baby Ruth" was escorted around Washington in the same carriage given to her mother by her father. She was considered one of the most well loved first ladies in all American history.  Here is a wonderful display of President and Mrs. Grover Cleveland.
