Birth: Feb. 10, 1845
Arlington
Arlington County
Virginia, USA
Death: Mar. 27, 1905
New Orleans
Orleans Parish

Mildred was the youngest child of Confederate General Robert E. Lee and his wife, Mary Anna Custis Lee. She was a great favorite of the family, nicknamed "Precious Life" and, although she was rather plain and tending towards plumpness, she had a vital and captivating spirit. General Lee always used to say that she brought light into any room she entered. Mildred was very close to her father and when he died, she seemed to lose any purpose in her life. She traveled extensively but found little joy in it. She died in New Orleans, LA and was brought back to join her other family members in the crypt at the Lee Chapel and Museum.
