InfoMargaret Woodrow Wilson (born April 16, 1886 in Gainesville, Georgia -- died February 12, 1944 in Pondicherry, India) was the daughter of President Woodrow Wilson and Ellen Louise Axson, and served as the First Lady of the United States after her mother's death and between Woodrow's second marriage.

She sang and made several recordings around 1918.

Wilson had two sisters, Jessie W. Wilson and Eleanor R. Wilson.

In 1938 Wilson travelled to the ashram of Sri Aurobindo in India, and chose to stay there for the rest of her life.

Born April 30, 1886, she died on February 12, 1944. Having studied music at Goucher College and in private lessons in New York, Margaret traveled across the U.S. and Europe during World War I giving concerts for soldiers and raising funds for the Red Cross. Devoted to social causes, she studied the religious classics of India extensively. She eventually traveled to Pondicherry, India, where she lived in the ashram of Sri Aurobindo, a contemporary of Gandhi. Never married, she died of uremia on April 24, 1944, and is buried in the Protestant cemetery at the ashram in Pondicherry.
