“General Lee had known Mary Custis from childhood. She was the great-granddaughter of Martha Washington, the first, First Lady of the United States. He started courting Mary in 1829 but her father George Washington Parke Custis didn’t consider Robert a suitable match for his daughter as Robert’s father had spent time in jail. However, Robert and Mary were able to change his mind and they married with his approval on June 30, 1831. The couple went on to have seven children.”
