Folk Figure, Wife of General Robert E. Lee. She was the daughter of George Washington Parke Custis & Mary Ann Randolph Fitzhugh. The Lee family lived at Arlington House, which was inherited by Mary. Unfotunately, the house was seized by the Union because Mary was handicapped & unable to pay the new tax they had installed, and the home's property was turned into a burial ground (now present-day Arlington Nat'l Cemetery) for the dead soldiers.
