    I have been researching my husband’s family tree and found your website. I read the bio regarding Mariane Porcher Prioleau Gadsden. I read it to him, and he said, “George Washington didn’t have kids!” I found this….
    “George Washington was born on February 22, 1732, at Popes Creek, Virginia, British America and the oldest of six children to Augustine and Mary Washington. He became an American political leader, military general, and Founding Father who served as the first president of the United States from 1789 to 1797. Washington died on December 14, 1799, aged 67 at Mount Vernon, the family’s estate in Virginia. Washington had no biological children. His wife Martha Dandridge had four children from her first marriage to Daniel Parke Custis. These step-children were Daniel Custis (1751–1754), Frances Custis (1753–1757), John “Jacky” Parke Custis (1754–1781) and Martha “Patsy” Parke Custis (1756–1773).

      Hi Susan,
      Thanks for the info. I’ll do some research too. Maybe it was step-granddaughter. Glad you checked our website. Have a nice day.
