Description

This house was the center of

some of Virginias finest

culture, during several genera-

tions of Lees who lived in it-

The last notable one was Gen'l

Robt. E. Lee. His father

was born at Leesylvania, but

six other well know Lees were

born and reared under the

roof of this "Stratford."

The first two were members of

Virginias House of Burgesses.

Two others were signers of the Dec.

of Independence, and still two

more occupied posts of

honor abroad and at home.

In the Court House in

Montross (where we spent the nite

in hotel--,Aug 24-1930)

there are oil portraits of all

this notable Lee family as

well as of Washington, Wm Pitt,

and tablets of interest.

A patriotic Soc. is restoring the

old mansion, with me, May Green,

Louise Sheets and Louise Griffeth-Burrer.
