Caroline's first husband, Ezekiel C. McIntosh, was a prosperous Troy merchant and President of the Troy Schenectady Railroad. McIntosh's death left Caroline a wealthy widow.
Caroline married Former-President Fillmore on February 10, 1858 in Albany, New York. At the time of their marriage, Caroline required Fillmore to sign a prenuptial agreement.
The Fillmores lived in a big castle-like mansion at 52 Niagara Square and Delaware Avenue (the current site of the Statler Office Building). Millard & Caroline Fillmore were married for 16 years before Fillmore's death and she lived seven years as a widow.
