Second Wife of 13th United States President Millard Fillmore. Born in Morristown, New Jersey she was the daughter of Charles Carmichael and Temperance Blachley Carmichael. She married her first husband, Ezekiel C. McIntosh (1806–1855), a prosperous Troy, New York merchant in November 1832. They had no children, and McIntosh's death at age 49 left her very wealthy. She married Millard Fillmore on February 10, 1858 in Albany, New York. At the time of their marriage, Caroline required Millard to sign a prenuptial agreement. They lived together for sixteen years in a mansion on Niagara Square in Buffalo. Caroline survived the former president for seven years and was awarded a presidential widow's pension and franking privilege by Congress. She died in August 1881 and is buried alongside her second husband, his first wife and their two children. She died at the age of 67.
