Mary Custis "Daughter" Lee (1835-1918) was the eldest daughter of General Robert E. Lee and Mary Anna Custis Lee, and their second eldest child. She outlived all of her siblings, and in her twilight years was quite vocal about being the last surviving child of Robert E. Lee. Based on the records available, she was somewhat aloof and "bossy". She spent most of her adult life traveling the world. She never married.
Mary Custis "Daughter" Lee was the eldest daughter of General Robert E. Lee and Mary Anna Custis Lee. Due to her mother's disability from rheumatism, "Daughter" Lee took on many of the tasks of running the Lee household on her mother's behalf during the Second American Revolution. After General Lee was elected President of the Confederate States, he reflected that being the hostess of the fortnightly levee he continued to hold would have fallen on his daughter even if his wife had not been brutally murdered during an attempt on his life.
