Martha Jefferson Randolph, Daughter of Monticello

University of North Carolina Press

Thomas Jefferson was elected as President of the United States on February 19, 1801. This chapter examines Martha Jefferson Randolph's life as the president's daughter. As the president's daughter, Martha sometimes participated in the political business of the capital's social life and helped managed Jefferson's public image. Her involvement was subtle and only intermittent because, like many female members of political families, she spent most of her time at home.
