My friend-
You are killing me.
LOL-  First GWP Custis and family lived there. (To be  quick)
Then when GWPC died R.E. Lee lived there with his growing  family.
What do I get for a prize?
Your  Most Obedient Servant,

So  how many CW veterans buried in  the Cem are there because of  CW  

Good  question....

A very loose guess of CW dead  for me is around  50k.   Maybe  30k?

So a good chunk of the total number of  people buried there?

Question # 2. It is 1000s of years  old.

I doubt that.

I think  the  first person buried 
there, in the  plantation, is along the  long staircase  leading from the 
of the  hill going to  Robert Todd Lincoln.  It is quite  decayed.  The  
name  is 
available on Wiki.


Let's make it  easy.  Who lived there when GWP Custis and his family  lived 
there, and who lived there when Robert E. Lee and his family lived   there?

Best Regards,
Al  Mackey
