Taken from wikipedia; Mary Eunice Harlan, (1846 – 1937) was the daughter of United States Senator James Harlan and the wife of Robert T. Lincoln. The eldest child of James Harlan and Ann Eliza Peck, Mary Eunice Harlan was born in Iowa City, Iowa on September 25, 1846. The only one of James Harlan's children to live to adulthood, she was raised in Mount Pleasant, Iowa and Washington, D.C. She was educated in Mount Pleasant and at Madame Mentelle's Finishing School in Washington. In 1864 Robert Lincoln noticed the teenaged Mary and began to court her. She had also come to the attention of Robert's mother Mary Lincoln, who approved and attempted to play matchmaker. President Abraham Lincoln became aware of his wife's activities and aided her by asking Senator Harlan to escort Mrs. Lincoln to Lincoln's 1865 presidential inaugural, enabling Robert to escort Mary Harlan. In order to keep their courtship secret, Robert Lincoln often used the assistance of his friend Edgar Welles to meet Mary Harlan at the home of Edgar's father Secretary of the Navy Gideon Welles. Their marriage was delayed by the assassination of Robert's father and the subsequent mourning period. Robert Lincoln and Mary Harlan married on September 26, 1868. They had three children: daughter Mary, called Mamie; son Abraham II, called Jack; and daughter Jessie. For a time Mary Lincoln lived with Robert Lincoln and Mary Harlan, but the two women apparently did not get along, and Mary Lincoln moved out. Some sources indicate that Mary Harlan Lincoln may have been an alcoholic, which negatively affected her relationship with her mother in law, husband and children. Robert Lincoln pursued a successful career in law, business and politics, and his family lived at homes in Chicago, Washington, and Hildene in Manchester, Vermont. By all accounts, Mary Harlan Lincoln was intensely private, and worked diligently to keep herself out of the public eye. In addition to managing the family households, she was responsible for her husband's estate after his death, as well as charitable bequests and family trusts before her death. Mary Harlan Lincoln died in Washington on March 31, 1937. She was buried with her husband and son Jack at Arlington National Cemetery.
