“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Dolley Madison (American First Lady)
Date of Birth:

July 12, 1849
Dorothea Dandridge Payne Todd "Dolley" Madison was the wife of the 4th President of the United States, James Madison, and was First Lady of the United States from 1809 to 1817. She also occasionally acted as what is now described as First Lady of the United States during the administration of Thomas Jefferson, fulfilling the ceremonial functions more usually associated with the President's wife, since Jefferson was a widower. It is disputed as to whether her true name is Dorothea, Dorothy, or Dolley and her name has been widely misspelled as "Dolly".
