Anne Hill Carter Lee
Birth: 1779
Shirley
James City County
Virginia, USA
Death: Jun. 29, 1829, USA

Ann Carter Lee is buried near her son, Robert E. Lee at the Lee Chapel in Lexington, VA. A myth of the Lee family is that Ann was wrongly pronounced dead in the fall of 1805. She was placed in a coffin a funeral was held and her remains placed in the family vault. A week later the sexton entered the Lee vault to put fresh flowers on the casket, he heard her cry for help. She soon revivied and regained her health. 15 months later on January 19,1807 she gave birth to boy who was named Robert E. Lee.
