  • Will, : In 1831 Mary Randolph Custis married Robert E. Lee at Arlington with Marie Caroline Goldsborough as one of the bridesmaids. They spent the first days of their honeymoon at Ravensworth. Robert E. Lee always considered this house a haven as had his mother, and often returned to visit when he needed
    strength and courage. Anna Marie administered the estate until she died in 1874. She left it to Mary Custis Lee with the following preface to the will: "In the earlier days of my trials and affliction when I was about to act as executrix to her Uncle's estate she very generously gave up some things to which she was entitled by his will, thereby enabling me to act with much more ease and comfort which has proved very beneficial to the estate. It is not my desire or intention that she should lose by this, on
    the contrary I shall be enabled to leave her more than could have been saved under previous arrangement, and it is a source of great gratification to me to believe that her affectionate liberality and disinterestness will be thus rewarded." Mary Lee partitioned her inheritance among her six children and the land was gradually sold though the house remained in the Lee family until it was mysteriously and tragically destroyed by fire in 1925. The ruins are still visible.
