Their daughter Rachel married General Andrew Jackson) Though she was dead before her husband took office, Rachel Jackson is listed as a First Lady by White House historians. Without a wife, President Jackson asked his wife's niece, 21-year-old Emily Donelson, to perform White House hostess duties. After she refused to socialize with the scandal-plagued Margaret O'Neill Eaton, wife of Secretary of War John Henry Eaton, President Jackson asked Sarah Yorke Jackson, the wife of his adopted son Andrew Jackson Jr., to became his de facto hostess at official events.
