Grover Cleveland entered the White house as a bachelor, but did not remain one for long. In 1885, the daughter of Cleveland's friend Oscar Folsom visited him in Washington. Frances was a student at Wells College, and when she returned to school Cleveland received her mother's permission to correspond with her. They were soon engaged to be married. On June 2, 1886, Cleveland married Frances in the Blue Room in the White House.
He was the second President to marry while in office, and the only President to have a wedding in the White House.]
At twenty-one years old, Frances was the youngest First Lady in American history.

All I got was Thriller and T or C! The only good thing I can say is that I did know that one and didn't guess.
