    Anna, a celebrated beauty, married Elliott Roosevelt, the brother of future President Theodore Roosevelt in December 1883.
    More Details Hide Details Anna bore Elliott three children: Anna Eleanor (1884–1962), Elliott Jr. (1889–1893), and Gracie Hall (1891–1941). Like other society ladies, Anna Roosevelt had no profession beyond the role of wife and mother. Roosevelt was responsible however for numerous social events and charity balls. Within the circles that she and Elliott moved, both men and women fawned over Anna's beauty. By contrast, Anna was somewhat ashamed of her daughter Eleanor's plainness and even nicknamed Eleanor "Granny", due to her serious demeanor.
