Mary Anna Custis Lee was the only surviving child of George Washington Parke
Custis, George Washington's step-grandson and adopted son and founder of
Arlington House, and Mary Lee Fitzhugh Custis, daughter of William Fitzhugh
and Ann Bolling Randolph Fitzhugh. Her godmother, Mary Randolph, the first
person recorded buried at Arlington, wrote an early book on housekeeping and
cooking. Lee's birth year is usually given as 1808, but it appears in the
Custis family Bible and in records kept by her mother as 1807, and is also
referred to in a letter her mother wrote in the autumn of 1807. She was born
at Annefield in Clarke County, Virginia when her mother's coach stopped
there during a journey. She was well educated, having learned both Latin and
Greek.
