Biography

Louisa's parents were English colonists living in Maryland before the Revolutionary War. In 1771, her father moved the family back to England, then went to live in France while the colonies fought British rule. Louisa was intelligent and a skilled writer and musician, but suffered all her life from nervous disorders that caused extreme fatigue and fainting. Her family moved back to England in 1784 and, in 1795, she met a young American diplomat named John Quincy Adams. The couple was engaged a year later.

Married 26 Jul 1797 in London, England.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8]

Buried 1852 in Braintree, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[9] The date may be after May 15, 1852.[10]
