Which FLs were born in Chicago?

Here's a trivia question for you....I was giving tours at the National First Ladies Library last weekend and at the end of our biography of Mrs. Obama, it says "she is the third First Lady born in Chicago." So the question was - who were the first two? Well, I didn't know and had to look it up - anyone know the answer without looking? Let's see how good you are!

Hillary Clinton is one and I think the other is Betty Ford

Great. So here's a question for you. What other city is the birthplace of three first ladies?

Jennie W said...

New York City

Eleanor Roosevelt, Barbara Bush, and Elizabeth Monroe

In addition, Nancy Reagan was born in Queens and Julia Tyler on Long Island.

NY State can also claim the births of Jackie Kennedy (Southhampton), Frances Cleveland (Buffalo), Abigail Fillmore (Saratoga County) and Hannah Van Buren (Kinderhook)

I think I got them!
