Milwaukee
Milwaukee County
Wisconsin, USA
Death: Dec. 6, 1945
District Of Columbia, USA

Her attorney father, Walter Steuben Carter (1833-1904), was founder of the law firm, Carter, Hughes & Dwight (96 Broadway & 6 Wall Street, New York, NY) where her husband, Charles Evans Hughes, was a partner.

They were married 05 December 1888.

Charles Evans Hughes went on to become the 36th Governor of New York (1907-1910), 44th United States Secretary of State (1921-1925), and 11th Chief Justice of the United States (1930-1941).

"At the turn of the century, there was a succession of mansions which had been built from Montauk Highway to Sagaponack Road. Three still exist: The Rose House, the Nathaniel Rogers House and the Minden House. One large mansion that no longer exists was named Tremedden, located on the corner of Sagaponack Road and Ocean Road. It was a very large three story wooden structure owned by the Carter family. In 1888, Charles Evans Hughes married Antoinette Carter, and then in 1916, he ran for President of the United States. On the night of the election, he went to bed in Tremedden, thinking he had won the election over Woodrow Wilson. The next day, he awoke to discover he had unexpectedly lost the state of California and, as a result, the election."(1)
