Riassunto: In 1728, Fredericksburg was established on the banks of the Rappahannock River to serve as a port for Virginia's expanding western population. Fielding Lewis arrived from Gloucester County at a very young age to manage his father's store on the outskirts of Fredericksburg.
Across the river, living on a farm just below town were the Washingtons, who had arrived in 1738. Augustine Washington had brought his second wife, Mary Ball, and their children to live at Ferry Farm. After her husband's early death, Mary Washington remained on the family farm and reared her children alone. Betty Washington, at the age of seventeen, became her cousin Fielding Lewis' second wife.
Her brother George Washington, the eldest son, serious and ambitious, quickly raced to manhood. As George grew in prominence, Fielding Lewis contined his close relationship with his brother-in-law.
When the War for Independence began, Fielding Lewis was unequalled among local leaders in his diligent and patriotic service. His valued relationship with General Washington undoubtedly deepend his commitment and spurred him to greater sacrifice.
