About this Famous Person


American Edith ROOSEVELT

born Edith Kermit CAROW

Second wife of Theodore Roosevelt and served as First Lady of the United States during his presidency

Source :  Tim DOWLING

Born: on August 06, 1861 in Norwich, Connecticut, USA
Died: on September 30, 1948 in Oyster Bay, New York, USA


Born in Norwich, Connecticut, the daughter of Charles Carow (1825–1883), a merchant, and the former Gertrude Elizabeth Tyler (1836–1895) and a granddaughter of Daniel Tyler who was a general in the American Civil War, Edith grew up next door to Theodore "T.R." Roosevelt in New York and was best friends with his younger sister Corinne. She was T.R.'s first real playmate outside his immediate family.

She and her sister Emily Tyler Carow (1865–1939) were brought up in an environment of comfort and tradition. An infant brother, Kermit (February 1860 – August 1860) died one year before her birth.

At Miss Comstock's school, Edith acquired the proper finishing touch for a young lady of that era. A quiet girl who loved books, she was often T.R.'s companion for summer outings at Oyster Bay, Long Island; but this ended when he entered Harvard College. Although she attended his wedding to Alice Hathaway Lee in 1880, their lives ran separately until 1885.
