The Jan/Feb, 2009 issue of my D.A.R. newsletter has an article on this woman:
Maryland's Frederick Chapter and Shepherdstown's Pack Horse Ford Chapter combined efforts to properly mark the grave (pictured) of 'Real Daughter' Henrietta Bedinger Lee at Elmwood Cemetery in /Shepherdstown, WV on Saturday, August 2....The honor 'Real Daughter,' refers to a woman who was a member of the NSDAR and whose father served in the Revolutionary War."
"Henrietta's parents were Lt. Daniel and Sarah Rutherford Bedinger. Henrietta was an honorary member of the Virginia's Old Dominion Capter of NSDAR. She is one of the 768 women identified as a Real Daughter by the NSDAR.
She married attorney Edmund Jennings Lee, a first cousin of Robert E. Lee, and together they had five children."
"....Henrietta's father Daniel enlisted before the age of 16, following his brother to join the American Revolution. He was wounded, hospitalized in Philadelphia, where the family found him and brought him home. But not content to stay safely at home, he rejoined the Revolutionary forces.....guest speaker Lee Goldsborough III, great-great-grandson of Henrietta Beginger Lee."
I am not researching these people and have no further information.
