His first wife was named Eliza Allen. They were married January 22, 1829. There was a mysterious quarrel between Sam Houston and Eliza Allen that resulted in her returning home to her family after eleven weeks of marriage. They were never reconciled.
Sam Houston's second wife was a Cherokee Indian woman whose name was Tiana Rodgers, also known as Diana Rodgers. They were married in the summer of 1830. Tiana and Sam Houston "divided the blanket" in 1832 when he left the Wigwam Neosho, their trading post home, to journey to Texas. There were no children born to these two marriages.
Margaret Moffette Lea was Sam Houston's third wife. They were married May 9, 1840 and remained married for the remainder of Sam Houston's lifetime.
