Illustrious Family.
Blind and almost helpless as a baby,
the mother of Gen. Fitzhugh Lee lives
with her son Daniel, near Fredericks
burg, Va. Though nearly 90 years old.,
she is still bright and cheerful. Sur
rounded by descendants who fairly idol
ize her, she is rapidly nearing the dark
river, fearless and with childlike confi
dence. Her grandfather, George Ma
son, was a prominent statesman in the
early days of the republic and took part
in framing the American constitution.
His third son, John, inherited consider
able property in Virginia, including An
alostan island, to which place he
brought a lovdy Maryland bride, whose
family name was Munay. The young
est child of this couple was Anna Maria
who was brought up on the outskirts of
Washington- In her youth she was
known as "beautiful Nannie Mason of
the island." At Arlington she first met
Lieut Sydney Smith Lee, United States

ing resulted in eourtship and marriage,
Gen. Joseph E. Johnston being one of
the groomsmen. Portraits taken in
those early days show the brideto have
had a lovely, piquant face, with rosy
cheeks, brown eyes and clustering
brown curls.
The young couple resided for some

beauty, wit and vivacity made her the 1

Lee went with him to Richmond, leav
ing all her property in the hands of the
enemy. Never throughout these four
years of horror and carnage did Mrs.
Lee's courage give way, though her hus
band, sons and many relatives were at
the front. At the close of hostilities she

a severe cold settled on her eyes. After

fortitude, she submitted to a painful
operation , which, however, failed to
give relief, and she became totally blind.
