James Monroe, US President 1817-25

James Monroe was born 28 Apr 1758 in Westmoreland County, Virginia, the eldest child of Spence Monroe (1727-1774) and his wife Elizabeth Jones (1730-1774).

James Monroe married Elizabeth Kortright (1768-1830) on 16 Feb 1786 at Trinity Church in New York City.

James' Monroe family can be traced back four generations in Virginia, but there are no known royal connections behind him.
