Notes


"Maj. General George Washington Custus Lee, a son of Gen. Robert E. Lee, born, 16 Sept. 1832 - Fortress Monroe, Va. George Washington Custis Lee, captain Corps of Engineers, C. S. A., July 1, 1861; colonel and aide-de-camp to the President, August 31, 1861; brigadier-general, June 25, 1863; major-general, October 20, 1864. Commands-Commanding brigade of local troops for defense of Richmond; as major-general commanding troops for defense of Richmond, consisting of Barton's Brigade, the brigade of Confederate States' employees and several battalions of heavy artillery. Southern Historical Papers, Vol. XXXVI Richmond, Va., January-December. 1908 "Major-General George Washington Custis Lee." by W. Gordon McCabe.


"Consider: he came of a great race--his name was the synonym of all that was highest and noblest, not in Virginia alone, but in the nation--he was a soldier of soldiers, and, despite the fact that he was heir to a great estate, bequeathed him by his maternal grandfather, Washington's adopted son, he had deliberately chosen the stern profession of arms as the calling closest to his heart--no strange choice for the son of Robert E. Lee and the grandson of "Light Horse Harry."


In June, 1850, when not quite eighteen, he entered the United States Military Academy at West Point, and, after four years of severest study (during which time he received scarce a single mark of demerit, so punctilious was his observance of all rules of discipline and duty), in June, 1854, was graduated first in his class. Just twenty-five years earlier, his illustrious father had graduated there second in his class, though it must be allowed that the class of '9 was far more distinguished for ability than the class of '54. For seven years thereafter he served with marked distinction in "the Engineers," the corps de'elite of the army, receiving repeated commendation from his superiors for skill in the construction of forts from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific, and especially for his able work in river improvement--all of which led to his assignment to duty in the "Engineer Bureau" at the seat of government.


Then came the Secession of the Southern States, when every Southern officer of the Army and of the Navy must needs meet the question whether to adhere to the Union, or to draw his sword against his native State.


His father left him absolutely free of all influence of his to decide the momentous question. "Custis," he writes to his wife, "must decide for himself, and I shall respect his decision, whatever it is." But that decision was never for a moment in doubt, for there was bred in his bone the feeling of his grandfather, "Light Horse Harry," who exclaimed, when the "Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions," foreshadowing Secession, were under discussion in the Virginia Legislature in 1798--"Virginia is my country; her will I obey, however lamentable the fate to which it may subject me."


When, on May 2nd, 1861, the die was cast, and, resigning his commission in the army, he resolved to offer his sword to his mother State, it is safe to say that all those who knew him best (including his father, ever temperate in his estimate of the abilities of even his own sons) entertained no shadow of doubt that a brilliant military career lay open before him in the conflict impending between the sections.


He was then in the very flower of his young manhood (not quite twenty-nine) and of high and imperturbable courage, as was to be expected of one of his "valiant strain." He had received, as we have seen, the severest professional training, was as cautious of judgment as he was sparing of speech, and even those comrades, who were resolved to oppose him, reckoned him, so we now know, as ideally equipped for the great business of war. Thus he came to Richmond in May of '61, eager to give proof, in a cause he held most righteous, of "the mettle of his pasture," and almost at once (oh! malicious fortune!) was assigned duty in Richmond, as aide-de-camp to President Davis, with the rank of colonel of cavalry.


Had the assignment lasted but a single year, it' had been hard enough to a young soldier, who had inherited the old fighting Berseker blood, and who, though modest, was yet but mortal, and could be conscious of his fitness to share with kinsmen and classmates the glories of that immortal army that was destined to write its name so often in the very "Temple of Victory." He had looked for, command in the field, but "Dis aliter visum," and Mr. Davis saw fit to retain him at the seat of government during the whole of those four eventful years. We do not know positively that the silent young aide ever uttered one word of formal complaint. His habitual reticence was never pierced, save, perhaps, by one, and that one his father. But is it not all easy to divine by those who know the temper of his breed?


Consider, again, what it must have meant to him to attend day by day confidential conferences at the Executive Mansion, while those, knit to him by blood or youthful friendships, were yonder "at the front," winning high rank and dazzling a world with deeds. For the rank he cared no whit; for we have Mr. Davis's explicit statement that he repeatedly offered him promotion (long before he finally consented-to accept it), and that he as steadily refused it. "The only obstacle to be overcome," writes Mr. Davis, "was his own objection to receiving promotion. With a refined delicacy, he shrank from the idea of superseding men who had been actually serving in the field."


It was said at the time, and is still constantly repeated, that he spoke to his father on the subject, requesting most earnestly field assignment, and that the latter told him that his highest duty was obedience to the will of his superior.


The story is, probably, as apocryphal as the letter alleged to have been written to him by his father when Custis Lee was a cadet at West Point, in which occurs the oft-quoted platitude--"Duty is the sublimest word in our language"; a letter spurious beyond question, yet one that, having caught the popular fancy, is as hard to "kill" as the myth of "Barbara Frietchie" and destined, no doubt, to as long a tenure of popular credence.


True, he rendered eminent service in the position he held, and the President bears emphatic testimony to the great weight he attached to his sagacious counsel. Above all other members of his staff, Mr. Davis entrusted to him delicate missions (of a nature too confidential to be set down in writing) to his father and to other generals commanding in the field. Much of highest import to the future historian he could have told, after the war, touching these inside shapings of events, but as might have been surely predicted of a man of his temperament, he would neither talk nor write about them, and their secrets died with him.


But the position at best was a trying one, and no one but a soldier can fully understand what this enforced duty meant, as the heroic years went by, to a man of high spirit and consummate military equipment. While, as said already, he cared little for the rank his classmates and kinsmen were steadily winning, Custis Lee was too good a soldier not to care immensely for what that rank signified. Above all, it must have been well-nigh intolerable to him that, all question of rank and "glory" apart, he should not be allowed to share their hardships and to brave with them the chances of honorable wounds and noble death.


Of "the class of '54," whose highest honors he had achieved, the records show, allowing for deaths and resignations, that twenty-four espoused the Union side, of whom four fell in battle, the first to fall on either side being Lieutenant John T. Greble, U. S. A., who, at the early age of twenty-seven, died a soldier's death at Big Bethel, fighting his guns to the last. Fourteen of that class, including Custis Lee, cast their fortunes with the South. Of these fourteen, four served on the staff and rose only to "field rank," while ten became general officers.


Of the ten, eight yielded up their lives for hearth and home and country. Of the two survivors of these ten, both were of the same name--allied, indeed, in spirit, but not by blood--Custis Lee and, his junior by a year, Stephen D. Lee, who, like "Edward Freer of the 43rd," "could count more combats than he could years," and who, "with all his honor-owing wounds in front," closed his brilliant military career as Lieutenant-General and Corps Commander.


Of Custis Lee's close kinsmen, his younger brother, William Henry Fitzhugh, became Major-General of cavalry before he was twenty-seven, while his first cousin, gallant "Old Fitz," Stuart's "right-bower" (as the latter loved to call him), became Major-General before he was twenty-eight. Such were the classmates and immediate kinsmen of Custis Lee, who assuredly, had fortune given him his "heart's desire," had proved himself the peer of any of them.


In June, 1863, Custis Lee himself consented to become Brigadier, having been placed in command, in addition to his staff duties, of the troops garrisoning the "Defences of Richmond." These "Defences" he greatly strengthened with trained engineering skill, and so improved the discipline and general efficiency of the "heavy artillery" under his control, that, later on, in Oct. '64, he was raised to the rank of Major-General and assigned active command of all the outlying troops about the city, including the forces at Drewry's and Chaffin's Bluff.


During the autumn and winter of that tragic time, when Lee, with his handful of veterans of confirmed hardihood, was still confronting the cruel odds of Grant with unabashed mien, Custis Lee was repeatedly under fire, and bore himself with the serene courage of his race. But the bitter end was fast approaching; and when Richmond was evacuated on the 2nd of April. 1865, and her garrison troops, under Custis Lee, taking the field as a skeleton Division in Ewell's skeleton Corps, joined the gaunt remnant of the "Army of Northern Virginia" on the "Retreat," the hope of a successful issue of the desperate venture was, in truth, but the forlornest of "forlorn hopes." But his constancy shone out as brightly in the gloom as did his daring, and, though it was the irony of fate that his first battle should be his last (and that battle a combat rather than a pitched fight), he fought his Division in the disastrous affair at "Sailor's Creek" with such skill and audacity as drew from Ewell (dear "Old Dick," hero of a hundred fights!), in his official report, most emphatic and enthusiastic commendation.
There, on April 6th, 1865, just three days before "the Surrender" at Appomattox C. H., Ewell's force of 3,000 was literally surrounded by about 30,000 of the enemy's infantry and cavalry, and, after a stubborn resistance, in which the garrison troops behaved with great steadiness, was forced to surrender--Ewell, Custis Lee and four other general officers being among the prisoners.


This ended the military career of the young soldier, who, we must allow, had tasted but bitterly of the meagre "chance" given him by fate, or fortune, or call it what you will.


Of his civil life, it is needless to speak, save in briefest fashion. In the autumn of 1865, he was made "Professor of Civil and Military Engineering and Applied Mathematics" in the Virginia Military Institute. Here, possessed of notable powers of lucid exposition, he taught successfully for five years, resigning his chair at the beginning of 1871 to accept the Presidency of Washington and Lee University, to which he had been elected on the death of his father in October, 1870. This high position he held for over a quarter of a century, evidencing executive ability of the first order; and when, in 1897, owing to ill health, he resigned the headship of that institution, he carried with him into retirement the profound respect and deep affection of the whole academic body, professors and students alike.


He was, by reason of his training, a strict disciplinarian, yet was this strictness so tempered by tact and kindly sympathy that he became the idol of the students, who constantly carried to him their little troubles and perplexities, assured beforehand of ready understanding and wise counsel. Removing to beautiful "Ravensworth," the old Fitzhugh estate in Fairfax County, where lived the widow and sons of his brother, General W. H. F. Lee, he spent the remaining years of his life in scholarly seclusion, and it was there that he gently fell asleep on the 18th day of February, 1913.


It may he added here that, during the long years when he had a house of his own at Lexington, and, indeed, afterwards at "Ravensworth," he was the ideal host, full of delicate, unobtrusive provisions for the comfort and entertainment of his guests, charming them all, despite his habitual reserve when not under his own roof-tree, by his gracious manners, his quiet humor, and the modesty of his genial talk, which ranged over a wide field of intellectual interest, and evidenced a literary taste and critical perception most unusual in one whose life had been so persistently devoted to scientific pursuits.


Though it is not unlikely that the recollection of the untoward stroke of fate, that, in his younger days, had shattered his dream of military distinction, never faded from his mind, casting in no mean measure a shadow over his whole life, such was the inimitable sweetness of his disposition that he never became embittered, nor could the snows of eighty winters ever chill the generous impulses of a noble heart. As Sheridan said of Warren Hastings, "his noble equanimity, tried by both extremes of fortune, was never disturbed by either," and, in contemplating the sacrifices imposed upon him by duty and patriotism, which he accepted with the unquestioning "humility of a high spirit," surely we may say with Lear, Upon such sacrifices The gods themselves throw incense.


We have dwelt thus long upon his career, because we hold it a part of the business of this Society to perpetuate, so far as may be allowed us, the names and virtues of its members as they pass away, and because we hold Custis Lee justly entitled to take high place beside the best and noblest of our "Virginia Worthies".


Owing to his inbred shrinking from publicity of every kind and to his almost impenetrable reserve, which not even the most persistent "interviewer" ever pierced, these few poor remarks will probably constitute the sole memorial of him, though, of course, his name will live, in some measure, in the memoirs of his contemporaries, and especially in the intimate domestic letters of his father, in many of which, still unpublished, there is (as some few of us know, who have had the privilege of reading them), constant mention of him.


As we salute him with this halting "Ave atque vale," we are sustained by the abiding remembrance that, from "the prime of youth" to "the frosty, yet kindly, winter of his age," he kept inviolate the chastity of a pure and stainless life, and that with "soft invincibility" he remained to the very end "the Master of his fate, the Captain of his soul."


From a Paper read at the Annual Meeting of the Virginia Historical Society
February 24, 1914, by the President, W. GORDON McCABE.


"He went to West Point and graduated at the head of his class in 1854. Ten years later he was a major general in the Confederate Army and fought in the bitter Appomattox campaigne."


Confederate General Custis Lee was born on September 16, 1832. He was born to Robert E. and Mary Custis Lee in Fort Monroe, Virginia. The eldest son and the second of seven children, Custis Lee, as his family called him, followed his father's footsteps to West Point. At age 16, Custis had been denied entry into the military academy, but his father wrote an appeal to General Winfield Scott and so he was admitted the following year. Though he had needed his father's influence to gain admission, once in West Point Lee made the most of his opportunity. He graduated first in his class of 46 in 1854. For the last two years of his studies, his father was superintendent of the academy.
Lee served in the Engineering Corps until 1860, primarily in California. When Fort Sumter fell in April 1861, he was stationed in Washington, D.C. Lee resigned his commission on May 2, 1861, about two weeks after his father resigned from the U.S. Army, and became a captain in the Confederate Army, assisting in the construction of fortifications for Richmond.
In August 1861, Confederate President Jefferson Davis selected Lee to serve as his aide-de-camp, and he was soon promoted to colonel. Custis Lee spent the next three years in this position, gathering military information for Davis and conferring with him on a wide variety of military issues. For his service, he was promoted to brigadier general in 1863. Lee was always torn between his desire for a field command and Davis's wish that he remain in that position. Although he never seriously lobbied for a field command, opportunities did arise. During the Gettysburg campaign, when his father's army was in Pennsylvania, Lee commanded part of the force defending Richmond, and he oversaw the Richmond defenses during Union General Ulysses S. Grant's Virginia campaign of 1864. He also assumed leadership of a division in October 1864, but his command saw action only when the Confederates evacuated Richmond in March 1865. He and his force were captured at Sayler's Creek a few days before his father surrendered the rest of the Army of Northern Virginia.
After the war, Custis Lee taught engineering at the Virginia Military Institute. He later replaced his father as president of Washington College (which was eventually renamed Washington and Lee College) upon the elder Lee's death in 1870. Custis Lee retired from that post in 1897, and died in Fairfax City, Virginia, on February 18, 1913.

Charles MORGAN (AFN:8PRQ-PQ) Born: 28 Sep 1680 d. 22 Sep 1766
LDS Marriage(s):
Spouse: Alice THORNTON (AFN: 1VNS-GLB) Marriage: Abt 1709 Va (same children below)
Spouse: Anne (AFN: 1VNS-GZL) Marriage: Abt 1740 Fauquier Co., Va
Spouse: Anne MORGAN (AFN: 8PRQ-TF) Marriage: 1705 Of Rappahannock, Va


Family 1: Anne MARRIAGE: 28 Sep 1680 (error ?) Rappahannock, VA


"Charles recorded his cattle mark in Old Rappahannock county on 03 Sep 1690, probably to protect the estate which fell to the oldest son by law. Over the years Charles acquired lands in what is now Fauquier county, Virginia. A grant of 425 acres was obtained in 1724 and a 1737 quit rent shows he owned 650 acres in Fauquier county.


In 1749 he deeded land to his sons Benjamin and James.


Though too old for the military, Charles furnished supplies to the English Government during the French and Indian Wars.


The will of Charles Morgan was dated 05 Dec 1758 and proved 22 Sep 1766. In the will he mentions his wife Ann and seven children already provided for (Charles Jr, Simon, William, Benjamin, James, Alice and Mary.) Son John, was willed 2/3rds of the estate. His wife Ann was probably dead by the time the will was probated."

Charles did not have any more children than those listed based on his will dated 6 May 1800.


I don't believe Charles married Mary Robinson. I have checked the original Fauquier County, Virginia marriage bond records where this marriage comes from, and there is no identification of which Charles Morgan married Mary Robinson in 1781. I suspect some researcher in the past assumed it was this Charles, not knowing that he had moved to Allegheny County, Pennsylvania before 1770, and had married Frances before 1776 (as their son John was born c1776). I think the Charles Morgan who married Mary Robinson in Fauquier County, Virginia was Charles (c1757-1832) son of Benjamin Morgan, and cousin of Charles (c1743-1808).


There were actually 4 different Charles Morgan's born in Fauquier County who were 1st cousins and named for their common grandfather Charles Morgan (1680-1766):
Charles (c1743-1808), son of Simon
Charles (c1745-1822), son of William
Charles (c1757-1832), son of Benjamin
Charles (c1759-1788), son of John
Only Benjamin's son was unmarried in 1781.
Also, do you have any source for the last name of Frances being Lee?

Notes


CONFLICT: Thought to be one of the twin daus of James I and Mary Gregory. James Taylor was a neighbor of Wm Lea. John Lea* (born c1677, New Kent Co., VA). He married Ann "?". Some say Ann Carter.


"After Ann married Thomas Carruthers in 1730, the family moved to St. George's Parrish, Spotsylvania Co., Va. Ann Taylor Lea Carruthers died 1731, leaving minor heirs, Elizabeth and William, both of whom chose Thomas Carruthers as their guardian.


According to notes that I recieved January, 2000 from Jan Knowlton of Halendale, California, Ann may have had a twin named Elizabeth or John, or they could have been triplets."
