The Monroes had two daughters, Eliza and Maria (a son, James, died in infancy). Maria was the first presidential child married in the White House, in 1820… Some sources list her birthdate as 30 June, some as 30 July. Little is known of her early life… While in Paris during the Reign of Terror, Elizabeth Monroe supposedly helped stop the execution of Madame Lafayette, wife of the Marquis de Lafayette, the famous French supporter of the American revolution.
