InfoHe was born on the 4th of July in 1803. He died an alcoholic on October 23, 1834. He was only 31. John was an enthusiastic youngster. He was educated at the best schools and he excelled in sports. But his perfectionist father greatly disapproved of his lackluster performance at Harvard and his embarrassing expulsion.
John won the hand of his cousin, Mary Catherine Hellon in spite of his brothers efforts. They were married in the second wedding ceremony to take place in the White House. He worked as a secretary in his father's White House. Unfortunately a public humiliation by an enemy of the family derailed any political aspirations. He tried his hand at managing the family's business, but soon it began to lose money. He likewise turned to alcohol for escape and died young.
