Rachel

Rachel-Jackson
Rachel Jackson, wife of Andrew Jackson. She died in 1828 right after his successful candidacy for president. He always blamed her death on his opponents. They claimed she was a bigamist because the divorce from her first husband was not properly completed before she married Andrew. Maybe, but I’d say it probably had more to do with bad 1820s diets and her tobacco habit.
