Below is my intended solution.
American First Ladies (by first name)
Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, Martha Jefferson Randolph, Dolley Madison, Dolley Madison, Elizabeth Monroe, Louisa Adams, Emily Donelson, Sarah Jackson, Angelica Van Buren, Anna Harrison, Jane Harrison, Letitia Tyler, Priscilla Tyler, Julia Tyler, Sarah Polk, Margaret Taylor, Abigail Fillmore, Jane Pierce, Harriet Lane, Mary Lincoln, Eliza Johnson, Julia Grant, Lucy Hayes, Lucretia Garfield, Mary McElroy, Rose Cleveland, Frances Cleveland, Caroline Harrison, Mary Harrison KcKee, Frances Cleveland, Ida McKinley, Edith Roosevelt, Helen Taft, Ellen Wilson, Edith Wilson, Florence Harding, Grace Coolidge, Lou Hoover, Anna Roosevelt, Elizabeth Truman, Mamie Eisenhower, Jacqueline Kennedy, Claudia Johnson, Thelma Nixon, Betty Ford, Rosalynn Carter, Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush, Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush

Bonus questions: Which first lady served under two presidents?

However as pointed out by Guest and eluded to by Charlie, it would be more aptly titled Hostess of the White House. You can see my Reply to Guest for more details, (in case you want more information on American First Ladies then you ever really wanted to know.)
