Thanks- they are connected as spouses, but it’s not visible since they are both living. Also, there’s no "override" feature for when both members of the couple are Notable. But you can click the Connections button (right now it says 411 Connections) and see her.

Thanks!

...the president's white mother is a direct descendant of the first known slave in the American colonies through a family by the name of Bunch.
