Which president in Group B can be added to Group A? Why?

Group A: John Tyler, Benjamin Harrison, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson
Group B: James Monroe, Millard Fillmore, Rutherford Hayes, Chester Arthur, Dwight Eisenhower, Gerald Ford


Answer

The presidents in Group A each remarried after the death of his first wife (Tyler married Letitia Christian and Julia Gardiner, Harrison married Caroline Lavinia Scott and Mary Scott Lord Dimmick, Roosevelt married Alice Hathaway Lee and Edith Kermit Carow, Wilson married Ellen Louise Axson and Edith Bolling Galt). Therefore, Millard Fillmore, who married Abigail Powers and Caroline Carmichael McIntosh, can be added to Group A.
