Rose Adèle Cutts Douglas Williams (1835 – 1899) was an American salonière and military wife.
Rose Adèle Cutts was born in 1835 in Washington, D.C. She was the daughter of James Madison Cutts,[1] a nephew of former President James Madison, and Ellen O'Neal, a niece of Rose O'Neal Greenhow. Her mother was from a Maryland Catholic family and raised Adele as a Catholic. She studied with her great aunt, Dolly Madison,[2][3] and at Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School.[4][5]
In November 1856, she married Stephen A. Douglas.[2] With Stephen's approval, she had his two sons baptized as Catholics and reared in that faith. She had a miscarriage in 1858 and became ill. The following year, Adele gave birth to a daughter, Ellen (1859-1860), who lived only a few months. She was instrumental in his 1860 presidential campaign.[4][3] When Douglas died in Chicago in June 1861, Adèle never entertained again and went into extended mourning.
In 1866, after the Civil War, she married Robert Williams, a Union officer from Virginia; they had six children: Robert Cutts Williams (1867–1921), Ellen Williams Patton (1869–1929), Philip Williams (1870–1942), Adèle Cutts Hedges (1873-1932), James Cutts Williams (1874–1901), who died young after falling from a train in Tarlac during the Philippine Insurrection, and Mildred Mary Farwell (1878-1941).[2][6]
Adèle Cutts Douglas died in 1899 in Washington, D.C. She is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.[2] Related Items:
