Eliza Johnson (1810-1876)

Eliza Johnson was the wife of Andrew Johnson, who became president after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln in 1865. Born Eliza McCardle, she was the daughter of a shoemaker and grew up in Greeneville, Tennessee. She attended school through the sixth grade, which was unusual for the time. The Johnsons had five children: Martha, Charles, Mary, Robert, and Andrew. Eliza left much of the work of entertaining in the White House to her daughters, especially Martha, the wife of Judge David T. Patterson, later a senator. In this photograph in an oval frame, Mrs. Johnson wears a lace bonnet and faces right.
