Portrait print circa 1868 showing Martha Washington (1731 - 1802) at home at Mount Vernon. Martha Dandridge Custis, a widow, married George Washington in 1759 and together they raised her children John Parke Custis (known as "Jackie") and Martha Parke Custis (known as "Patsy") from her previous marriage. Her first husband Daniel Parke Custis, whom she married at the age of 18, died in 1757. George Washington (1732 - 1799) was the commander of the Continental Army in the American Revolutionary War (1775 - 1783) and the first US President (1789 - 1797). Martha Washington is considered to be the first "First Lady" of the United States although the term was not used at the time - during her lifetime she was known as Lady Washington. Print by Jacob Rau.
