John Quincy Adams

Early Life and Family

Did he marry?

He married Louisa Catherine Johnson in 1797. She was the daughter of a British mother and an American father; her father, Joshua, served as the U.S. consul in Great Britain. Louisa was born in London and remains the only First Lady to ever be born outside the United States. Adams received criticism in some American newspapers for marrying a foreign-born woman from England, and some referred to him as “the American Prince of Wales.”
