Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Ellen Axson Wilson
    FIFTIES
  • 1914
    Age 53
    Her health failing slowly from Bright's disease, she died in the White House on August 6, 1914.
    More Details Hide Details On the day before her death, she made her physician promise to tell Wilson "later" that she hoped he would marry again; she murmured at the end, " take good care of my husband." She was buried in Rome, Georgia among her family. The president remarried to Edith Bolling Galt in 1915. Ellen Axson Wilson is buried at Myrtle Hill Cemetery.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1889
    Age 28
    Eleanor, however, was born in Connecticut in 1889, while Wilson was teaching at Wesleyan University.
    More Details Hide Details His distinguished career at Princeton University began in 1890, bringing his wife new social responsibilities. From such demands she took refuge, as always, in art. She had studied briefly in New York, and the quality of her paintings compares favorably with professional art of the period. As First Lady, Mrs. Wilson painted and drew sketches in a studio set up on the third floor of the White House, donating much of her work to charity. She arranged the White House weddings of two of her daughters. The Wilsons had preferred to begin the administration without an inaugural ball, and the First Lady's entertainments were simple, but her unaffected cordiality made her parties successful. In their first year, she convinced her scrupulous husband that it would be perfectly proper to invite influential legislators to a private dinner, and when such an evening led to agreement on a tariff bill, he told a friend, "You see what a wise wife I have!"
  • 1886
    Age 25
    Humorously insisting that her own children must not be born Yankees, she went to relatives in Georgia for the birth of Margaret in 1886 and Jessie in 1887.

  • 1885
    Age 24
    Wilson, aged 28, married Ellen, aged 25, on June 24, 1885, at the home of the bride's paternal grandfather in Savannah, Georgia.
    More Details Hide Details The wedding was performed jointly by his father, the Reverend Joseph R. Wilson, and her grandfather, the Reverend Isaac Stockton Keith Axson. They honeymooned at Waynesville, a mountain resort in western North Carolina. That same year, Bryn Mawr College offered Dr. Wilson a teaching position at an annual salary of $1,500. He and his bride lived near the campus, keeping her little brother with them. Together, the Wilsons had three daughters:
  • 1883
    Age 22
    Thomas Woodrow Wilson first saw her when he was about three and she was only a baby. In April 1883, Woodrow visited his cousin Jesse Woodrow Wilson in Rome, Georgia and met Ellen again—she was now keeping house for her widowed father.
    More Details Hide Details He thought, "what splendid laughing eyes!". They were engaged five months later but postponed the wedding, while he did postgraduate work at Johns Hopkins University and she nursed her ailing father.
