Louisa Catherine Johnson Adams, wife of John Quincy Adams, was the First Lady of the United States from 1825 to 1829. Born in London, she was the first First Lady to be born outside the United States, or the preceding Thirteen Colonies — a distinction that would not be shared until 192 years later by Melania Trump.
