Info"Baby" Ruth Cleveland (October 3, 1891 - January 7, 1904) was the first child of United States President Grover Cleveland and the First Lady Frances Cleveland. Her birth between Cleveland's two terms of office caused a national sensation. However she was a very sick child who died at the age of twelve of diphtheria, and was buried in Princeton Cemetery.

The Curtiss candy company claimed to have named the "Baby Ruth" candy bar after her, 17 years after her death.

She was born October 3, 1891 and died of diphtheria on January 7, 1904. She was only 12. The nation immediately took a liking to the frolicking infant in the White House affectionately naming her " Baby Ruth." Her tragic death came as a surprise, and the whole nation mourned. In 1921, the Curtis Candy Company supposedly renamed one of its candy bars "Baby Ruth" in her honor.
