President Stephen Grover Cleveland1,2

M, b. 18 March 1837, d. 24 June 1908
     President Stephen Grover Cleveland. 22nd & 24th US President.2,3 He is better known as Grover Cleveland. He was born on 18 March 1837 in Caldwell, Essex County, New Jersey.4 He was the son of Rev. Richard Falley Cleveland and Anne Neal.1,2 Grover attended the village school in Caldwell and served as a clerk in the village store. The death of his father compelled Grover to abandon his expectation of a collegiate education, and he obtained a position as teacher in the Institute for the blind in New York City and remained there for one year. In 1855 he set out to find his fortune in the "far west" intending to locate in Cleveland, Ohio. Visiting his uncle, the Hon. Lewis F. Allen, at Buffalo, N.Y., he was persuaded to assist him in the preparation for the press of "Allen's Herd Book," upon the promise that on the completion of that work an effort would be made to give him an opportunity to study law. After ten weeks spent upon the herd book, a place was obtained for him in the law office of Rogers, Bowen and Rogers in Buffalo where on the 6th day of August, 1855, he began his legal studies. In 1859 he was admitted to the bar, but remained in the office of Rogers, Bowen and Rogers until Jan. 1, 1863, when he was appointed assistant district attorney for Erie county. In 1865 he was the unsuccessful Democratic candidate for district attorney. He then took up the practice of law in partnership with Isaac V. Vanderpool, and in 1869 became a member of the firm of Lanning, Cleveland and Folsom. In 1870 he was the successful candidate for sheriff of the county and held the office for three years. In 1874 his law business was reorganized under the firm name of Bass, Cleveland and Bissell, afterward Cleveland and Bissell.

In 1881 he received the Democratic nomination for mayor of Buffalo. While the Democratic state ticket was defeated in the city by 1600 votes, Mr. Cleveland was elected mayor by over 3500 majority. He introduced numerous reforms and checked various abuses, becoming known as the "veto mayor" by reason of his fearless exercise of executive power in guarding the public treasury and disallowing extravagant expenditures of public money.


Mr. Cleveland was inaugurated as President March 4, 1885.3 ; Miss Folsom was married to President Cleveland in the blue room of the White House. Mrs. Cleveland endeared herself to the people by the tact and graceful dignity with which she fulfilled the duties of her position, and no word of unfavorable criticism was ever uttered, despite her youth and inexperience, she being the youngest mistress the White House had ever known. On her return to Washington, on President Cleveland's second inauguration, she was welcomed with cordial affection and made as great a social success as she had during her husband's first administration, having the dignity of motherhood added to her many charms. Mrs. Cleveland was elected a trustee of Wells College in 1887.5 President Stephen Grover Cleveland died on 24 June 1908 in Princeton, New Jersey, at the age of 71.6
