Inscription
Two miles south is the grave of Betty Washington Lewis, the younger sister of George Washington. She was born in Westmoreland County in 1733 and married Fielding Lewis in May 1750, becoming his second wife. Her husband purchased land in 1752 and built their house, Kenmore, outside Fredericksburg. They had eleven children together, but only five sons and one daughter lived to adulthood. During the Revolutionary War, Fielding Lewis served in the army as a colonel and supervised a gun factory. Betty Washington died on 31 March 1797 while visiting her daughter Betty Lewis Carter in Culpeper County.
