Ruth Cleveland
Birth: Oct. 3, 1891

New York, USA
Death: Jan. 7, 1904

American Folk Figure. The daughter and first child of President Grover Cleveland and First Lady Frances Cleveland, she died at the age of 12 from a bout of diphtheria. A myth arose that the candy bar "Baby Ruth" was named after her (partially perpetuated by the creators, the Curtis Candy Company). However, that myth has subsequently been debunked.
