Martha Dandridge Custis (1731-1802) was the oldest daughter of John Dandridge (1700–1756), a Virginia planter and immigrant from England. She was born on her parents' plantation, Chestnut Grove in the Colony of Virginia. At the age of 27, Martha married 26 year old George Washington, on January 6, 1759, at the White House plantation. She brought her vast wealth to her marriage to Washington, which enabled him to buy land to add to his personal estate. Mostly content to live a private life at Mount Vernon and her homes from the Custis estate, Martha Washington did follow Washington to his winter encampments for each of eight years. [Wikipedia]
