InfoAdele Cutts, the second wife of Senator Stephen A. Douglas (1813-1861), was a Washington hostess and socialite. She grew up attending the receptions of her great-aunt, Dolley Madison. Cutts was admired for her grace, dignity, and beauty. In 1856 Cutts married Douglas, a shabby widower with two sons, twenty-two years older than his new bride. They built a mansion with a ballroom and it quickly became the social center of Washington. Mrs. Douglas accompanied her husband everywhere. Tragically they lost two children. Five years after Stephen Douglas's death, Mrs. Douglas married Captain Robert Williams, a Virginian who had remained loyal to the Union. Another celebrated Washington hostess and beauty, Rose O'Neale Greenhow, who became a Confederate spy, was Adele Cutts' aunt.
