Born Jane Appleton in 1806 to a Congregationalist minister in Hampton, New Hampshire; Jane Pierce is the wife of 14th President Franklin Pierce. Finding social and political life not to her liking, and suffering from depression compounded by the loss of her children; Jane was a reluctant First Lady. The beginning of her time in the White House was tarnished by the tragic death of her last living child, “Benny,” who was the only fatality in the derailment of their train on the way to Pierce’s inauguration. It took two years for her to stand beside her husband during social events.
