Louisa Adams Spouse Coin- the only first lady not born in the states

Louisa Adams, the wife of John Quincy Adams, is the only first lady not born in the continental United States. She was born in London England and her 2008 $10 gold coin shows her and her son going back for a visit to Europe:2008 First Spouse Series One-Half Ounce Gold Proof Coin Louisa Adams (X19)

Another observation from my map: American presidents prefer American Brides to foreign ones, except J.Q. Adams, and East Coast babes to West Coast ones, except Richard Nixon. 🙂

I created the map using Google Maps.
