Washington Socialite. The daughter of a Washington tavern keeper, she married Tennessee Senator John H. Eaton, friend and political ally of Andrew Jackson, in 1829. Eaton became Secretary of War in Jackson's cabinet later that year. Peggy was snubbed by Floride Calhoun, wife of Vice President John C. Calhoun, which led to a rift between Jackson and Calhoun. Peggy and Eaton spent two years in Madrid, where he served as Minister to Spain, before retiring to Washington in 1840.
