Alexandria is an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia in the United States. As of the 2010 census, the population was 139,966, in 2016, the population was estimated to be 155,810. Located along the western bank of the Potomac River, Alexandria is 7 miles south of downtown Washington, D. C. Like the rest of Northern Virginia, as well as Central Maryland, modern Alexandria has been influenced by its proximity to the U. S. capital. It is populated by professionals working in the federal civil service, in the U. S. military, or for one of the many private companies which contract to provide services to the federal government. One of Alexandria's largest employers is the U. S. Department of Defense. Another is the Institute for Defense Analyses. In 2005, the United States Patent and Trademark Office moved to Alexandria, in 2017, so did the headquarters of the National Science Foundation; the historic center of Alexandria is known as Old Town. With its concentration of boutiques, antique shops and theaters, it is a major draw for all who live in Alexandria as well for visitors.
Like Old Town, many Alexandria neighborhoods are walkable. It is the 7th largest and highest-income independent city in Virginia. A large portion of adjacent Fairfax County south but west of the city, is named "Alexandria," but it is under the jurisdiction of Fairfax County and separate from the city. In 1920, Virginia's General Assembly voted to incorporate what had been Alexandria County as Arlington County to minimize confusion. On October 21, 1669 a patent granted 6,000 acres to Robert Howsing for transporting 120 people to the Colony of Virginia; that tract would become the City of Alexandria. Virginia's comprehensive Tobacco Inspection Law of 1730 mandated that all tobacco grown in the colony must be brought to locally designated public warehouses for inspection before sale. One of the sites designated for a warehouse on the upper Potomac River was at the mouth of Hunting Creek. However, the ground proved to be unsuitable, the warehouse was built half a mile up-river, where the water was deep near the shore.
Following the 1745 settlement of the Virginia's 10 year dispute with Lord Fairfax over the western boundary of the Northern Neck Proprietary, when the Privy Council in London found in favor of Lord Fairfax's expanded claim, some of the Fairfax County gentry formed the Ohio Company of Virginia. They intended to conduct trade into the interior of America, they required a trading center near the head of navigation on the Potomac; the best location was Hunting Creek tobacco warehouse, since the deep water could accommodate sailing ships. Many local tobacco planters, wanted a new town further up Hunting Creek, away from nonproductive fields along the river. Around 1746, Captain Philip Alexander II moved to what is south of present Duke Street in Alexandria, his estate, which consisted of 500 acres, was bounded by Hunting Creek, Hooff's Run, the Potomac River, the line which would become Cameron Street. At the opening of Virginia's 1748–49 legislative session, there was a petition submitted in the House of Burgesses on November 1, 1748, that the "inhabitants of Fairfax praying that a town may be established at Hunting Creek Warehouse on Potowmack River," as Hugh West was the owner of the warehouse.
The petition was introduced by Lawrence Washington, the representative for Fairfax County and, more the son-in-law of William Fairfax and a founding member of the Ohio Company. To support the company's push for a town on the river, Lawrence's younger brother George Washington, an aspiring surveyor, made a sketch of the shoreline touting the advantages of the tobacco warehouse site. Since the river site was amidst his estate, Philip opposed the idea and favored a site at the head of Hunting Creek, it has been said that in order to avoid a predicament the petitioners offered to name the new town Alexandria, in honor of Philip's family. As a result and his cousin Captain John Alexander gave land to assist in the development of Alexandria, are thus listed as the founders; this John was the son of Robert Alexander II. On May 2, 1749, the House of Burgesses approved the river location and ordered "Mr. Washington do go up with a Message to the Council and acquaint them that this House have agreed to the Amendments titled An Act for erecting a Town at Hunting Creek Warehouse, in the County of Fairfax."
A "Public Vendue" was advertised for July, the county surveyor laid out street lanes and town lots. The auction was conducted on July 13–14, 1749. Upon establishment, the town founders called the new town "Belhaven", believed to be in honor of a Scottish patriot, John Hamilton, 2nd Lord Belhaven and Stenton, the Northern Neck tobacco trade being dominated by Scots; the name Belhaven was used in official lotteries to raise money for a Church and Market House, but it was never approved by the legislature and fell out of favor in the mid-1750s. The town of Alexandria did not become incorporated until 1779. In 1755, General Edward Braddock organized his fatal expedition against Fort Duquesne at Carlyle House in Alexandria. In April 1755, the governors of Virginia, the provinces of Maryland, Pennsylvania and New York met to determine upon concerted action against the French in America. In March 1785, commissioners from Virginia and Maryland met in Alexandria to discuss the commercial relations of the two states, finishing their business at Mount Vernon.
The Mount Vernon Conference concluded o
Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania
The Perelman School of Medicine known as Penn Med, is the medical school of the University of Pennsylvania. It is located in the University City section of Philadelphia. Founded in 1765, the Perelman School of Medicine is the oldest medical school in the United States and is one of the seven Ivy League medical schools. Penn Med ranks among the highest recipients of NIH research awards, it is tied for 3rd place on U. S. News & World Report's "Best; the school of medicine was founded by Dr. John Morgan, a graduate of the College of Philadelphia and the University of Edinburgh Medical School. After training in Edinburgh and other European cities, Dr. Morgan returned to Philadelphia in 1765. With fellow University of Edinburgh Medical School graduate Dr. William Shippen Jr. Morgan persuaded the college's trustees to found the first medical school in the Original Thirteen Colonies. Only months before the medical school was created, Morgan delivered an address to the trustees and the citizens of Philadelphia, "Upon the Institution of Medical Schools in America" during which he expressed his desire for the new medical school to become a model institution: Perhaps this medical institution, the first of its kind in America, though small in its beginning, may receive a constant increase of strength, annually exert new vigor.
It may collect a number of young persons of more ordinary abilities, so improve their knowledge as to spread its reputation to different parts. By sending these abroad duly qualified, or by exciting an emulation amongst men of parts and literature, it may give birth to other useful institutions of a similar nature, or occasional rise, by its example to numerous societies of different kinds, calculated to spread the light of knowledge through the whole American continent, wherever inhabited; that autumn, students enrolled for "anatomical lectures" and a course on "the theory and practice of physick." Modeling the school after the University of Edinburgh Medical School, medical lectures were supplemented with bedside teaching at the Pennsylvania Hospital. The School of Medicine's early faculty included nationally renowned physicians and scientists such as Benjamin Rush, Philip Syng Physick, Robert Hare. In the mid-1800s, prominent faculty members included William Pepper, Joseph Leidy, Nathaniel Chapman..
William Osler and Howard Atwood Kelly, two of the "founding four" physicians of The Johns Hopkins Hospital were drawn from Penn's medical faculty. In 1910, the landmark Flexner Report on medical education reviewed Penn as one of the few medical schools of the era with high standards in medical instruction and research. In 2011, the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine was renamed in recognition of a $225 million gift by Raymond and Ruth Perelman. Raymond Perelman and his son, Ronald Perelman, are both alumni of Penn's Wharton School, it was the single largest gift made in the University's history, it remains the largest donation made for naming rights to a medical school. Between 1765 and 1801, medical school lectures were held in Surgeon's Hall on 5th Street in Center City, Philadelphia. In 1801, medical instruction moved with the rest of the university to 9th Street. In the 1870s, the university moved across the Schuylkill River to a location in West Philadelphia; as part of this move, the medical faculty persuaded the university trustees to construct a teaching hospital adjacent to the new academic facilities.
As a result, Penn's medical school and flagship teaching hospital form part of the university's main campus and are located in close proximity to the university's other schools and departments. Although they are independent institutions, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the Wistar Institute are located on or adjacent to Penn's campus; the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, Pennsylvania Hospital, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia serve as the medical school's main teaching hospitals. Additional teaching takes place at Chester County Hospital, Lancaster General Hospital, the Philadelphia VA Medical Center. During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the School of Medicine was one of the earliest to encourage the development of the emerging medical specialties: neurosurgery, ophthalmology and radiology. Between 1910 and 1939, the chairman of the Department of Pharmacology, Alfred Newton Richards, played a significant role in developing the University as an authority of medical science, helping the United States to catch up with European medicine and begin to make significant advances in biomedical science.
In the 1950s and early 1960s, Dr. Jonathon E. Rhoads of the Department of Surgery, mentored Dr. Stanley Dudrick who pioneered the successful use of total parenteral nutrition for patients unable to tolerate nutrition through their GI tract. In the 1980s and 1990s, Dr. C. William Schwab, a trauma surgeon, led numerous advances in the concept of damage control surgery for injured trauma patients. In the 1990s and 2000s, Dr. Paul Offit, a professor of Pediatrics at the School of Medicine and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, lead the scientific advances behind the modern RotaTeq vaccine for infectious childhood diarrhea. In 2006, Drs. Kaplan and Shore of the Department of Orthopedics discovered the causative mutation in fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva, an rare disease of bone. Benchmark changes in the understanding of medical science and the practice of medicine have necessitated that the school change its methods of teaching, as well as its curriculu
Virginia State Route 613 (Fairfax County)
State Route 613 in Fairfax County, Virginia is a secondary state highway. The designation includes several distinct suburban surface routes within the county; these routes were once connected, but changes in road alignment, new road construction, annexations by the independent city of Alexandria have separated them. These routes are signed only sporadically as 613 and local residents refer to these routes by their names; as of 2007, SR 613 is the designation of four distinct routes within Fairfax County. From the north, the first is that of Wilson Boulevard from the Arlington County line to the intersection with State Route 7 and U. S. Route 50 at Seven Corners. SR 613 continues as Sleepy Hollow Road to a terminus at State Route 244; the second section is Lincolnia Road for its entire length and begins at an intersection with SR 244 0.75 miles east of the previous terminus. It continues through an intersection with SR 620 to a dead end just before SR 2532 with access only from southbound SR 2532.
The third section begins at the City of Alexandria/Fairfax County line as a continuation of South Van Dorn Street, designated as State Route 401 within Alexandria. Its original terminus was at SR 644 but it was extended to SR 611 in the mid-2000s; the fourth section is known as Beulah Street for its entire length. It begins at SR 644 in Franconia, 0.5 miles west of the third section's intersection. It continues through intersections with SR 289 and SR 611. Past SR 611, SR 613 continues through Fort Belvoir United States Army installation where traffic is regulated by the Telegraph Gate which, as of 2001, only allows entry from 5:00-21:00 Monday-Friday with military identification card. SR 613 continues through the base, past the Fort Belvoir Golf Club, intersection with Kingman Road, but is permanently obstructed beyond its intersection with Wills Road at a former gate just before an overpass of a former military railroad spur; this section serves as U. S. Bicycle Route 1 from SR 611 for 0.4 miles to SR 618.
The fifth section is less than 0.1-mile long and is the continuation of Beulah Street from the now obstructed former gate to an intersection with SR 617, 0.3 miles before US 1 in Accotink. The annexation of parts of Fairfax County by Alexandria in the 1950s bifurcated SR 613 into sections to the south and northwest of the annexed land. Before that, the second and third sections of SR 613 described above were one route, called Lincolnia Road and ran along the current Lincolnia Road, Whiting Road, South Van Dorn Street. After the annexation and significant road realignment, the southern parts of Lincolnia Road were severed and given their current names. State Route 401 "Esso Pictorial Guide to Washington, D.

Anita Calvert Lebourgeoise
Anita Calvert Lebourgeois was an attorney, genealogist and women's suffrage orator. At the time, she was historian of ancestry, in Minnesota, she was born on October 1879 in Lonedell, Missouri as Anita Calvert. Her mother's maiden name was Jones. From both her father and mother's sides, she was a descendant of the royal families of House of Bourbon and Le Tournure of France, she was the great-grand niece of James Buchanan, 15th President of the United States and a direct descendant of the Calverts, Baron Baltimore. At an early age Calvert was adopted by her uncle, Earl M. Fairfax, who gave her every opportunity in the way of an education, a part of, received at Wellesley College, where she took a special course in genealogy and entered the Girls' Finishing School at Hartfordbury, England, she was a graduate of the Massachusetts State Law School, one of the first women in the New England States to advocate the Juvenile Law. By doing newspaper work she made her way through law school because of her uncle's disapproval of women taking up this study.
Just before a presidential election in New York, Calvert heard of a Tammany Hall meeting that the newspapers were anxious to report, but to which their representatives were denied admission. Presenting herself to the editor of the New York Journal she asked for an assignment covering this political work. "I can repeat what I hear, may be able to hear what another could not". She climbed a fire escape, hid in a locker in the room where the meeting was held with the help of the janitor, made such an excellent report that an ex-Governor of New York held as one of his most treasured possessions the white sailor hat, white shirtwaist and skirt on which she took notes, because she forgot to bring paper. Calvert participated in the presidential campaigns for William Jennings Bryan, in 1896, Woodrow Wilson, in 1912, was the only woman who took part in the campaign of Woodrow Wilson in Missouri, he wrote her after the election: "I want to express my appreciation of the active and intelligent work you have done.
As a leader of the party I feel that I owe you a direct personal expression of sincere thanks". Calvert was an advocate of Women's suffrage in the United States and traveled 102,000 miles in four years to campaign for it, she spoke before the Senate of four States, once she was told by a Secretary of State, opposed to suffrage, that as soon as the women of his State produced something they would receive the franchise. To this she replied: "The women of your State, in fact of the world, produced first the men of the world — who can produce more?" In March 1913, Calvert founded her own paper, The Invincible Magazine of History and Biography, the only publication of its kind edited by a woman. Her purpose was to promote the standard of American aristocracy of birth by bringing to light many hundreds of pedigrees of prominent men and women in the high places in the United States. Calvert became the editor of the Universal Cause magazine, taking up both sides of the suffrage question, the first number of which appeared January 1, 1914.
Anita Calvert's first husband was an attorney of New York. They were married in 1900 and had one daughter, Anita Fairfax, who died at the early age of five years. After being a widow for seven years, Calvert married Adolph A. Bourgeoise, her first sweetheart, he was a member of a good musician. Calvert was quick at repartee, a good story-teller and energetic. Calvert died on March 18, 1940 in Los Angeles
The Democratic-Republican Party was an American political party formed by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison around 1792 to oppose the centralizing policies of the new Federalist Party run by Alexander Hamilton, Secretary of the Treasury and chief architect of George Washington's administration. From 1801 to 1825, the new party controlled the presidency and Congress as well as most states during the First Party System, it began in 1791 as one faction in Congress and included many politicians, opposed to the new constitution. They called themselves Republicans after republicanism, they distrusted the Federalist tendency to centralize and loosely interpret the Constitution, believing these policies were signs of monarchism and anti-republican values. The party splintered in 1824, with the faction loyal to Andrew Jackson coalescing into the Jacksonian movement, the faction led by John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay forming the National Republican Party and some other groups going on to form the Anti-Masonic Party.
The National Republicans, Anti-Masons, other opponents of Andrew Jackson formed themselves into the Whig Party. During the time that this party existed, it was referred to as the Republican Party. To distinguish it from the modern Republican Party, political scientists and pundits refer to this party as the Democratic-Republican Party or the Jeffersonian Republican Party; when the modern Republican Party was founded in 1854, it deliberately chose to name itself after the Jeffersonians. In response, contemporary Democrats embraced the name Democratic-Republican to reinforce their party's claim to the party's pre-Jacksonian history. Modern Democratic politicians continue to claim Jefferson as their founder; the party arose from the Anti-Administration faction which met secretly in the national capital to oppose Alexander Hamilton's financial programs. Jefferson denounced the programs as leading to subversive of republicanism. Jefferson needed to have a nationwide party to challenge the Federalists, which Hamilton was building up with allies in major cities.
Foreign affairs took a leading role in 1794–1795 as the Republicans vigorously opposed the Jay Treaty with the United Kingdom, at war with France. Republicans saw France as more democratic after its Revolution while the United Kingdom represented the hated monarchy; the party denounced many of Hamilton's measures as unconstitutional the national bank. The party was weakest in the Northeast, it demanded states' rights as expressed by the "Principles of 1798" articulated in the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions that would allow states to nullify a federal law. Above all, the party stood for the primacy of the yeoman farmers. Republicans were committed to the principles of republicanism, which they feared were threatened by the supposed monarchical tendencies of the Hamiltonian Federalists; the party came to power in 1801 with the election of Jefferson in the 1800 presidential election. The Federalists—too elitist to appeal to most people—faded away and collapsed after 1815. Despite internal divisions, the Republicans dominated the First Party System until partisanship itself withered away during the Era of Good Feelings after 1816.
The party selected its presidential candidates in a caucus of members of Congress. They included James Madison and James Monroe. By 1824, the caucus system had collapsed. After 1800, the party dominated most state governments outside New England. By 1824, the party was split four ways and lacked a center as the First Party System collapsed; the emergence of the Second Party System in the 1820s and 30s realigned the old factions. One remnant followed Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren into the new Democratic Party by 1828. Another remnant, led by John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay, formed the National Republican Party in 1824 while some remaining smaller factions formed the Anti-Masonic Party, which along with some National Republican groups developed into the Whig Party by 1836. Most remaining National Republicans would soon after go on to be a part of the Free Soil and modern Republican parties in the 1840s and 1850s. Congressman James Madison started the party among Representatives in Philadelphia as the "Republican Party".
He, Jefferson and others reached out to include state and local leaders around the country New York and the South. The precise date of founding is disputed, but 1791 is a reasonable estimate and some time by 1792 is certain; the new party set up newspapers that made withering critiques of Hamiltonianism, extolled the yeoman farmer, argued for strict construction of the Constitution, favored the French Revolution opposed the United Kingdom and called for stronger state governments than the Federalist Party was proposing. The elections of 1792 were the first ones to be contested on anything resembling a partisan basis. In most states, the congressional elections were recognized—as Jefferson strategist John Beckley put it—as a "struggle between the Treasury department and the republican interest". In New York, the candidates for governor were a Federalist. Four states' electors voted for Clinton and one for Jefferson for Vice President in opposition to incumbent John Adams as well as casting their votes for President Washington.
Before 1804, electors cast two votes together wi
Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Shop
The Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Shop/Museum is a historic apothecary's shop in Alexandria, Virginia, USA, preserved as a museum. During its working life, the drug company was owned by generations of a Quaker family. A dramatic decline in sales during the Great Depression forced the shop to close its doors. In 1939, it was reopened as a museum. Today, most of the artifacts inside the shop are date to its closing. Edward Stabler came to Alexandria after apprenticing in the apothecary business with his brother in Leesburg, Virginia. A devout Quaker and savvy businessman, he rented space in 1792 at the corner of King and S. Fairfax to start his business and by 1796, he began renting 107 S. Fairfax. Nine years he took ownership of the building and turned it into a bustling apothecary business. By 1829, he had incorporated the building into his operation. Edward Stabler sold to a variety of city and country residents – from Martha Washington to Robert E. Lee, the local doctor to the local farmer; the typical products Stabler sold included medicine and garden equipment, surgical instruments, dental equipment, perfume and Bedford mineral water, window glass and varnish, artists' supplies and brushes.
Much of the medicine he sold was created on-site, using herb materials. By 1806, Stabler began traveling extensively to Quaker church meetings throughout the region, leaving oldest son William to run the business in his absence. After his father's death in 1831, the business passed to William. Keeping with the family-run tradition, William brought several of his brothers and his brother-in-law, John Leadbeater, into the business between 1832 and his death in 1852. John Leadbeater, a trained apothecary and dentist, purchased the business from William's wife, as the couple had no children, changed the name of the business from William Stabler and Co. to John Leadbeater. Once the Civil War erupted, Alexandria was occupied by Union troops – a fact noted in the Leadbeater business' daybook. After the First Battle of Manassas, Union troops poured into Alexandria and the Apothecary's books reported that many soldiers stood in line to buy "Hot Drops", a cough expectorant containing paprika and alcohol.
The drops sold for a cent each and sold over $1,000 in one day! In 1865, the business was operated by John's son Edward and soon supplied to nearly 500 pharmacies throughout the Washington DC area. At its peak, the Leadbeaters employed 12 salesmen throughout Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina to promote their wholesale and mail order businesses; the company operated in 11 buildings in Alexandria, including the two main buildings on Fairfax Street, offices on King Street, warehouses on Lee and Prince Streets, an office in Washington, D. C. By the turn of the century however, the family business was beginning to feel the effects of the growing commercial pharmacies and synthetic drug companies, as well as the downturn in the economy, the business declared bankruptcy in 1933, just days before the death of its owner, Edward S. Leadbeater, Jr. Spurred into action to save the historic collection for future generations, a plan was crafted by concerned Alexandria citizens and the American Pharmaceutical Association to purchase the collection and archives with private buyers.
The majority of the contents and archives were purchased at auction on July 19, 1933, by L. Manuel Hendler, a Baltimore ice cream merchant with an affinity for the history of pharmacy; the following year, the newly formed Landmarks Society of Alexandria purchased the buildings at auction. Hendler donated the contents and archives to the Landmarks Society. With the buildings and collection secured, the structures were conjecturally returned to their 18th century appearance by noted restoration architect, Thomas Tileston Waterman; the museum was re-opened in 1939, free of charge thanks to the financial support of the American Pharmaceutical Association. After an extensive renovation adding a fire suppression system, re-stabilizing the structure, the Landmarks Society donated the museum and its important contents to the City of Alexandria in November 2006. Edward Stabler, founded the shop in 1792 at the corner of King and Fairfax Streets. In 1796, he moved his operation to 107 S. Fairfax. Edward's son, William Stabler, took over the management of the shop in 1819.
Stabler was a known anti-slavery proponent and used his own money to buy slaves to free them. William Stabler inherited the business upon the death of Edward in 1831. John Leadbeater, William Stabler's brother-in-law, took over the business in 1852 upon the death of Stabler. There is a legend that Robert E. Lee was in the store when he received the orders to put down John Brown's raid in 1859; this is unlikely, though the owner of the pharmacy allowed a commemorative plaque to be installed in 1932 by the Sons of the Confederacy. John's son Edward took over the shop when John died in 1860; the Union-supporting family nearly lost the enterprise to the Confederates. Shortly after the First Battle of Bull Run, exhausted Union soldiers sought comfort from the store's merchandise. In the early 20th century, the drug store's business was good. Deliveries were made to several states, there was a lucrative wholesale business; the tough times of the Great Depression put the Leadbeater Drug Co. one of the oldest pharmacies in the United States, out of business, but the Alexandria locals, Manuel Hendler of Baltimore, recognized the history of the establishment and purchased it at the foreclosure auction.
It reopened as a museum in 1939, owned and operated by the Landmarks Society, the organization founded to run the museum. In 2004, the museum was closed for renovati
Ferdinando Fairfax was a Virginia landowner and member of the prominent Fairfax family. He was the youngest son of Bryan Fairfax, 8th Lord Fairfax of Elizabeth Cary, his brother was Thomas Fairfax, 9th Lord Fairfax of Cameron and his grandfather was Col. William Fairfax. George Washington and Martha Washington, who traveled to Towlston Grange after his birth, were his godparents. Ferdinando was the heir to his uncle, George William Fairfax, son of William Fairfax, married to Sally Cary, his mother Elizabeth's sister. George William Fairfax was Washington's close friend. Fairfax served as a justice of the peace for Jefferson County and was, at the same time, the largest slave owner in the County. From the 1770s onward, individuals in France and North America developed plans to colonize freed black people as a way of encouraging emancipation; these individuals proposed to form colonies in the Caribbean, or in the American West. One of the first such plans came from four enslaved black men in New England, who petitioned the colonial government for permission to buy their own freedom and transport themselves to a colony they wanted to found on the African coast.
Fairfax offered his own "practicable scheme" for ending slavery through colonization when he developed his "Plan for Liberating the Negroes within the United States" in 1790. Many of these plans were similar in that they wanted the abolition of slaves to be gradual, they wanted the government to compensate the slave owners for the lost property, they wanted the government to pay to educate and prepare free blacks for life as independent people, they wanted to colonize the freed slaves in a separate place from the white society; this was because most people at the time believed that the races would not be able to get along if they tried to live together. Fairfax squandered his inheritance on visionary schemes and squatters lawsuits. Ferdinando married his first cousin Elizabeth Blair Cary, daughter of Wilson Miles Cary and Sarah Blair; the couple had the following children:George William Fairfax, who married Isabella McNeil Wilson Miles Cary Fairfax, who married Lucy Griffeth Farinda Fairfax, who married Perrin Washington, a descendant of George Washington's brother Samuel Washington.
