U.S. President Wilson’s Father, Grandfather and Father-in-Law were Clerics – 1856

President Wilson’s father was a Protestant pastor, and his mother was the daughter of a pastor. It is interesting that the future President Thomas also married the daughter of a pastor.

On this day, future U.S. President Thomas Woodrow Wilson was born in Virginia. His father was a Protestant pastor, and his mother was the daughter of a pastor, and her maiden name was Woodrow, which is why Thomas got the middle name Woodrow. It is interesting that the future President Wilson also married the daughter of a pastor. His wife died while he was President, so the role of the First Lady was taken over by his daughter Margaret. He remarried to Edith Bolling, who was a descendant of the Native American princess Pocahontas. In the year 1919 Wilson was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and he was and still remains the only U.S. president to achieve a doctorate.
