Mary Randolph Custis Lee (1807-1873)

A Virginian, Mary Randolph Custis was the granddaughter of George Washington. She married Robert E. Lee in 1831 and they had seven children. Custis Lee never recovered from the loss of her family home and her George Washington memorabilia to the Union Army. Outliving her husband and two of her daughters, Mrs. Lee became crippled with arthritis and rheumatism at the end of her life. Custis Lee poses at the M. Miley studio in Lexington, Virginia, circa 1870.
